This is a yummy, no-fuss, no-fail shortbread recipe that I have been making for Christmas for many years now. You MUST use butter in this recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. With an electric mixer, cream butter in a large bowl. Beat in icing sugar & vanilla.
  3. Add salt, then flour to creamed mixture. (Mixture will still be crumbly.).
  4. With your hands or a wooden spoon, add the pecans until evenly distributed. (Mixture will now resemble cookie dough.).
  5. Shape dough into the size of dates (make a ball between your hands & then slightly squish to give the oblong shape), dredge in superfine sugar & place on ungreased cookie sheets.
  6. Bake 25 minutes until lightly browned.
