There were so many incredible recipes which arrived in my inbox from the recent Think Spice, Think Cloves event that I had the honor of hosting. I chose cloves because I love the way they can compliment both sweet and savory dishes.
One of the recipes that jumped out to me was sent in by CB just before the bell tolled. The idea of pecans in a spiced cookie was almost more then I could bear. I just had to make them! It did not take me long to do just that. I made some slight substitutions on the spices and used all butter instead of half shortening. I adored the outcome, they were absolutely delicious!
My love of food was cultivated early on by my family but has come alive while living in Peru. During the 12 years of living in Lima, Peru, I have also enjoyed numerous trips to other areas of the country.
