Use real butter for these cookies. Margarine works, but for a chewy texture and a melt in you mouth cookie, butter works best.

I've been making these cookies without the pecans. When I got the recipe it was called San Andreas Fault cookies because of the cracks in the powdered sugar. I know how great they taste! Thanks for sharing your recipe!

I used to make a similar cookie, called chocolate crinkle cookies. They are very good.
