      I must say that I enjoyed this much more than the more common shortbread recipes out there. Very quick and easy to make and absolutely heavenly with a slather of Grapefruit Curd. I lightly sprinkled the cooked shortbread with demerara sugar for that special sparkle. There weren't enough pecans for the recipe and I had to substitute about half hazelnuts. Good! Reviewed for ZWT 6.

      Very yummy! DH loved them. Aftr 30 minutes in the oven, mine were still moist. It tasted great, but the white sugar shortbread I have made usually ends up more crispy . . . curious.
