Pecan Shortbread Cookies

Why you'll love it

I love these scrumptious Pecan Shortbread Cookies. They are melt-in-your-mouth good and so easy to make.


3/4 cup unsalted butter room temperature – 3/4 cup granulated sugar – 1 tsp vanilla extract – 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour – 1/4 tsp salt – 3/4 cup toasted pecans chopped – 1/4 cup coarse sugar for rolling

Step 1

 Combine the sugar and butter. Add the unsalted softened butter, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract to a large bowl. Mix everything together using an electric hand mixer, beating on high speed.

Step 4

Chill the dough. Once the cookie dough is well mixed, transfer it to a large piece of plastic wrap. Then shape the dough into an 8-inch log. Wrap it tightly and place it into the freezer for about 30 minutes.

Step 5

Roll it in sugar. Once the shortbread log firms up, unwrap it and roll it onto a plateful of coarse sugar.

 Slice the cookies. Once the exterior of the cookie log is coated, slice the cookies into 1/4 inch slices.
