These cookies were much better than I expected. Delicious!! Once I saw how messy my hands would get towards the end dipping the cookie in egg whites then the pecans I went ahead and made all the cookies into balls then did all the dipping at the same time. Enjoy.

These cookies are just fantastic. I made them twice over Christmas. One of my favorite cookie recipe.

The reason I gave this recipe a 5 is this recipe is similar to the one I have BUT what gives the best flavor is to substitute the almond extract with pure vanilla extract then fill the indentation with colored buttercream frosting-i.e. red and green for Christmas, pink and yellow for Easter, orange and black for Halloween...can be festive all year long!!!

These were great for Christmas Goodie boxes! They were just like the ones my Grandma used to make years ago but had lost the recipe! I rolled them in candied crushed pecans and used red raspberry preserves. Also found it was easier to use a small 1/4 or 1/2 tsp. measuring spoon to make indentations rather than my thumb. Also, chilling them for overnight after made was a good idea to give the jam time to thicken and made them less sticky! They came out just lovely! Will be an all time favorite!

Not usually a nut person; I went for it nuts and all. After rolling in the nuts, I would rolled them lightly in my hands again and found they stayed together better. Tried several fillings; but I love raspberry. I gave them as Christmas Cookie gifts and got rave reviews.
