Slice & Bake Chocolate Pecan Cookies

Toasting the pecans makes a huge difference in the taste of these cookies. The double chocolate drizzle also satisfies my cravings for chocolate. They are so fancy looking, your guests will think they came from the best baker in town! —Lindsay Weiss, Overland Park, Kansas
