These were pretty good, but I'm glad I read the reviews and only baked them 15 minutes. Even that was too long as the bottoms were almost burned, so on the next batches I went 12 minutes. They taste almost exactly like Keebler Pecan Sandies, but a lot drier and more crumbly. I doubled the recipe and got just under six dozen cookies.
I was so happy to have stumbled across this recipe. My daughter has egg and soy allergies and we had been buying a very expensive brand of pecan shortbread cookies which came 9 to a box for about $5-$6. I came to my trusted and most favorite recipe Web site and found this delicious recipe. I used about 1 3/4 cups flour and a little more than a cup of pecans. When I crushed my pecans with my nutri bullet, I almost made pecan butter...so be careful if you use that appliance. I also used salted butter, as it was what I had on hand. My cookies were perfect at 15 minutes. I personally thought they needed just a little more sugar but my husband and daughter say they are perfect. I used a tablespoon cookie scoop and got 42 cookies. I plan to freeze them so they will last a while. Thank you so much! Edited 4/23 to add that these are great frozen. Once baked, I cooked and froze and we eat them whenever we like. I have also used these for a base for fruit pizza and they were incredible!
Wow! I had to improvise a little using 2T shortning with the butter and, a little white sugar to complete the 1/2 c of dark brown that I had. Time to stock up the pantry for me ;) I did'nt have parchment but, they were fine on the sheet and moved to a rack right away. I pressed them to appx. 1/4 inch. The first ones took about 15 min the last few I upped the temp to 350 and they were done in 12.
I made these for my guests that were coming a very long drive to visit us, and these went down a real treat with a nice cup of tea when they arrived. I made them to the recipe with no changes and they were very nice, buttery and nutty. I had one as I am a diabetic and was only allowed one to try, but my guests loved them, and went away home with what was left for the kids. thank you for posting.
These are really good, simple cookies. 14 min at 325 worked for me. I used my small cookie scoop, make the balls and got a old yoghurt style container, put cling wrap on the outside, bottom of the container to gently press the cookies. No sticking, nice and flat. Cookies are delicious.
A most excellent recipe. I omitted the pecans and added some powdered sugar. The kids can't have peanuts. Then I rolled out the cookies and made cut outs for Easter. They were so good. It was hard not to eat more than one before I gave them to the church. I will be making these cookies often. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe.
Love, love, love pecan shortbread cookies! These were easy to make and delicious. I only had dark brown sugar, so I used 1/4 cup of it and 1/4 cup of white sugar. I didn't line my cookie sheets with anything and they did fine. Took about 13 minutes per batch to bake. I made 50 small cookies since it was for a party. Everyone loved them.
These were ok.. the baked fine, but the flavor just wasn't there. I used butter and fresh pecans and real vanilla, but they just didn't have a prominent flavor.
I was happy to find this recipe to make for our Christmas cookie bags. We thought they were great and everyone loved them! Tony
These were a nice lightly flavored butter cookie. Easy to make and yummy. I baked mine about 20 minutes and would recommend making them small so the middle part bakes all the way. I gave these out as part of my Christmas cookie trays. Thank you for sharing!
