Grandma Cleo's Pecan Cookies

We made a book for my mother-in-law about her life (she's 97 and will probably out-live us).  It included memories from her children and grandchildren, pictures, some of her funny jokes and her delicious cookie recipe.  I thought I would share this recipe with you.  It really is a delicious cookie--you can't eat just one! 

Grandma Cleo's Pecan Cookies

2 cups self-rising flour
2 cups firmly packed light brown sugar
2 cups finely chopped pecans
1 stick butter
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 eggs, beaten

Melt butter and stir in sugar, eggs, and vanilla.  Add flour and pecans.  Mix well.  Drop cookie dough by teaspoons ontp a greased cookie pan.  Bake at 350 for 8 - 10 minutes.
