Pecan Shortbread Cookies

Shortbread cookies are some of our favorites! Their crunchy texture and buttery flavor make them really popular, but adding some pecan nuts into the mix takes things to a whole new level. Make sure you bake plenty of these because they will run out in no time!

I guess I’ve always had a passion for cooking ever since I was a kid when I was mom’s little helper in the kitchen. Even though I wasn’t actually cooking, I was a picky eater, and I focused on bringing more flavor to her dishes, by adding extra herbs and spices I felt might enrich it. Time has passed, and I haven’t changed that much: I am now my girlfriend’s helper.
