Ingredients:

cup sugar

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 375˚.
Sift together flour, baking soda and salt. Add sugars, shortening, egg and vanilla. Beat until smooth, about 2 minutes. Stir in oats and pecans by hand. On wax paper, shape the dough into one 12 inch roll and chill for 2-3 hours or overnight. (The colder the dough, the easier to slice.) Slice dough into 1/2 inch disks and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375˚ F for 10 -12 minutes or until golden brown.
Immediately after being removed from the oven, with the cookies still on the cookie sheet, top each cookie with a square of Hershey chocolate. Wait for the chocolate to melt a little and then place a whole pecan in the center. Remove from cookie sheet and cool.

These are, by far, my most favorite cookies on the planet! Feel free to use more than one square of chocolate on the top...I usually do!
