What do you call this cookie?

Just out of curiosity, what do you call those cookies that are basically pecan sandies rolled in powdered sugar? I've heard a few names for them, so I'm just wondering how many names they have.

Also, do you add any to yours? I've heard that with lemon they are lemon meltaways, but there have to be other things that can be added.
