Today’s gloomy weather made me want to curl up on my couch with a hot cup of coffee and a little something sweet. I wasn’t in the mood for chocolate (shocking, I know). I needed butter. And brown sugar. And maybe pecans. Comfort food, in other words. I happened to come across a recipe from my Great Aunt May May called Brown Sugar Pecan Rounds. Let me tell you, these sugary, buttery cookies (are rounds cookies?) did the trick.
