Pecan Crescent Cookies





These are some of my favorite cookies. They are simple to make and use few ingredients, but are still REALLY yummy! :-)I made them with Andrew, my littlest brother. Here is the recipe- and some pictures!

It tastes REALLY good when it's at this stage!
He LOVES chopping the nuts.
