Separate the four eggs into yolks and whites
Measure flour and sugar
Chop pecans​

Time Needed:
15 minutes (20-25 more for baking)​

Btw we made these last night sans the frosting and OMG...

they're so much better than the ones you get in the store. They remind me of the two-bite brownies but with a softer consistency.
