easy pecan shortbread cookie recipeThe cookie jar is empty, and that will not do. This Easy Pecan Shortbread Cookie Recipe  is delicious and a snap to make.

Easy Pecan Shortbread cookies  are fancy enough for company, and simple enough for having alone in the afternoon with a cup of coffee. I took these to a soccer dinner once…. the moms kept saying “oh, I’ll just have one” and then one more, and then one more, until finally all pretense off dieting was thrown to the winds. Some even took home extras in zipper bags. The serving plate was empty before long.

You can serve them as they come, or dress them up with a drizzle of chocolate– totally up to you. My daughter firmly insists they are better without chocolate…She prefers them plain… and she also doesn’t feel she has to wait for them to bake (got to keep my eye on the dough rolls….).

Easy Pecan Shortbread Cookies, hold up well in transport, so you can take them to potlucks, or sell them at bake sales. I like to keep a log of this easy shortbread in my freezer to bake up at a moments notice. They’re nutty, buttery, rich and ohhh sooo good!
