How to Make Cheesecake Cookies With Roasted Pecans!!!

I discovered this recipe on Pinterest and I received rave reviews from my family and church. These cookies are simple to make and have an addicting flavor that your loved ones will be sure to love. The first time I made them I accidently used self rising flour instead of the all purpose flour as listed in the recipe. This time I made them with all purpose flour. I realized that the cookies taste the same but puff differently while baking. I am posting pics of both options. You decided which one you like best. Now for the recipe...

Ingredients Needed
3/4 Cup Unsalted Butter
3 Oz Cream Cheese
2/3 Cup Sugar
1 Tsp Vanilla
2 Cups All Purpose or Self-Rising Flour
1/2 Cup Chopped Pecans (Roasted for about five minutes in oven)
Graham Cracker Crumbs

Preheat heat oven to 375 degrees.
In a large bowl, beat butter, cream cheese and sugar. Mix in Vanilla extract.
 Stir in flour until well combined.
Add Pecans
Scoop dough and form one inch balls.
Roll in Graham Cracker Crumbs.
Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until edges are golden and tops are slightly puffed.
