   Mix, form , and bake at 350° until lightly browned on top.  We always
   separate the mixture into scone size lumps and set them in a cast iron pa  n
   to bake in the oven.
   Nuts and fruit are optional.  However, they are very good with dried
   cranberries or apricots.  In combination with pecans, I think you'll find
   there is very little that can beat their appeal.
