Pecans are kind of a big thing in my family. Growing up, we would spend the whole fall and winter gathering pecans and then the whole summer shelling them. When I went to college in Utah, I had no idea how expensive they were in the stores. I also quickly learned that wild pecans are sweeter and smaller than store bought ones and taste… a lot better. I went through a short baking phase in college and my Dad sent me this recipe. I thought it was great that the recipe didn’t have eggs so I could eat it as cookie dough and I often prefer cookie dough over cookies. The cookies are very crumbly, but they are a favorite of mine!
