Expert Tips

*To toast the pecans, heat oven to 350°F. Spread pecans in ungreased shallow pan. Bake uncovered 6 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until light brown.

We've replaced ingredients with great-tasting alternatives to create better-for-you recipes that are just as yummy as the originals.

Don't have any buttermilk? To substitute, place 1 teaspoon vinegar in a 1 cup glass measuring cup; add fat-free (skim) milk to measure 1/3 cup. Let stand 5 minutes.

Flattening the cookies slightly helps the cookies bake more evenly.
