These are soft and rich and sweet and don't need any frosting! I first made balls of cookie dough from a scoop, so they would be the uniform in size, and then I chilled them in frig just a bit. This helps them hold their shape better when baking. There's a lot of butter in these, so they would have a tendency to spread out when baking before setting, so chilling helps prevent that.

Are there no pecans in the cookie dough? if there is you don't show adding it.

We included the pecans in step 4. Thank you.
