8 ingredients

Taken from Emeril Lagasse's book - "Every Day's a Party"; posted for ZWT 5. This is from Michelle's (who works at Emeril's 'home base' in New Orleans) grandmother, Priscilla. Sometimes called Pecan Lace cookies because once baked, they are as delicate as old lace. May be served with ice cream. May be stored in an air-tight container for a week.
