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.
