These are delicate and elegant sugar biscuits, half topped with sugar, and half unsugared and topped with pecans.

This dough can be a bit crumbly, but the cookies are amazing! Well worth the mess. - 21 Dec 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I am the original poster of this recipe. The crumbliness of the dough is what makes the crisp texture of the cookie when it is baked. If you mix the dough when the kitchen is hot,the dough is less crumbly and easier to mix. I usually mix it after I've spent the first part of the day baking other cookies. Then, when baking the butter cookie, I always do it first in the morning, when the kitchen is cold. Hope this helps. - 02 Nov 2012 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
