M & M Cookies - Pecan Cookies

It has always been a Christmas tradition in our family for my sister, Debra, to bake and bring M & M Cookies to our parent's house for Christmas.  We all loved them, except for our Daddy.  He said that he did not care for the candy in the cookies.  I decided to make them one year with chopped pecans, instead of M & M's.  Phillip and Brent loved them and so did our Daddy.  When I make the cookies just for my family, I half the dough and put M & M's in half of the dough and chopped pecans in the other half.  The cookies are so good, especially when they are still warm from the oven.
