  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • ⅔ cup powdered sugar
  • ⅔ cup sour cream
  • 2 large eggs

SUGAR COATING
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • ½ cup ground or very finely chopped pecans
Instructions
  1. Combine shortening, brown sugar and ⅔ cup powdered sugar in bowl of electric mixer. Beat at medium speed until well blended.
  2. Combine oats, flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. Add gradually to shortening mixture at low speed. Beat until well blended. Add the chocolate chips and blend until incorporated. Refrigerate overnight or until firm enough to handle.
  3. Heat oven to 350.
  4. Combine ½ cup powdered sugar and pecans.
  5. Shape dough into 1¼-inch balls. Roll balls in powdered sugar mixture.
  6. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheet.
  7. Bake 13-16 minutes or until top is crackled and dull and the cookies are set.
  8. Cool 2 minutes on baking sheet.
  9. Place on cooling racks to cool completely.
Notes
Be careful when you remove the cookies from the cookie sheet. they are very delicate and may fall apart. The firm up as they cool. Oh and I added the Chocolate chips on a whim. They just screamed "Add chocolate"!
