Pecan Shortbread Cookies for Dad

My dad loves shortbread and Pecans. I found this recipe on .

I followed the recipe, but I added my own touch. I dipped into melted chocolate!!!!! Yummy!!!
Pecan Shortbread Cookies
Pecan Shortbread's:
1 cup pecans, toasted and coarsely chopped
1 cup butter, room temperature
2/3 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 bag of good semi sweet chocolate
1. I toasted the pecans. 350 for 8 minutes
2. I creamed the butter sugar and vanilla together.
3. Added the flour and salt.
4. Folded in the pecans
5. I then formed it into two logs and then put it in the fridge for a couple hours
6. I cut them about 1/2 inch thick and put on a greased baking sheet. Baked for 15 minutes on 350
7. Melted a bag of good semisweet chocolate in the microwave for 30 seconds, stirred, then another thirty seconds. Only 30 seconds at a time until smooth. I then dipped the cookie in the chocolate.


  1. Those cookies dipped in the chocolate are right up my alley!

  2. We second that motion.


Thank you so much for letting me know how you feel about my dishes.
