Recipe by Hey Jude

Here's another terrific cookie recipe from my friend Bella, who is the world's greatest baker (in my opinion!). Prep time doesn't include chilling time (there are 3 different options for the chilling)

These cookies were excellent! I made the recipe exactly as written, and they were delicious. Tasted like shortbread cookies, with pecan flavor. I will be making these again. Just make sure to take them off the pan right away. One pan I waited a little too long and had to chip away at them.
