      I didn't love these as written... I didn't have the almond brickle chips, which maybe masks the fact that the actual cookie doesn't taste very good (I used a Betty Crocker butter pecan cake mix and real butter). I followed other reviewers and put the nuts just on top at first (I only had chopped pecans, which worked fine and looked pretty). But after tasting the first batch, I added about 1/3 cup of brown sugar to the rest of the batter and threw in the chopped pecans too. The second batch was much better in my opinion-and sweeter. I also whipped up a little soft caramel and drizzled that over the top just for fun. Thanks for the great idea-- I guess you just may have to mess with them if they aren't to your liking--although the other reviewers seemed to really enjoy them.

      I agree that these little gems are packed with wonderful butter-pecan flavor. The brickle chips give them a little extra added crunch and flavor. I, too, chose to just put a whole pecan on top instead of adding chopped pecans. I totally agree with using butter over margarine.

      Really yummy! the butter flavor was incredible. Definitely use butter- not margarine- makes a WORLD of difference. Very pretty with the pecan half on top instead of chopped!
