Notes

Keep the 2nd tray of cookies in the fridge while the 1st try bakes. This keeps the cookies cold, which helps to prevent spreading. 
*To toast your pecans: Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. On an unlined baking sheet, spread pecans in an even layer. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Cool.
**For the cookies: It's really important to not over bake these! I find that 19 minutes is perfect for my oven.
