  1. I loved pecan sandies, but we can't eat nuts any more, but I may have to try the chocolate peanut butter blossoms.

  2. I really need to get my wife out of the house.I would love to bake some of them.

  3. These are one of my favorites that my mom use to make when I was younger. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I am going to make a couple batches of these.
