I found a recipe years ago for Cherry Shortbread Cookies in a magazine and even though I had saved it, the magazine name had been torn off over the years. The base recipe called for most of the same ingredients listed below, with the addition of dried cherries instead of pecans, they used unsalted butter and added slightly more flour.
I had always wanted to try making my own "Pecan Sandies" and used this to create Holiday Baking #3--Pecan Shortbread Bars. I have to say, that I wish I had doubled or even tripled this recipe because they are THAT good! I also LOVE the fact that there are only 4 ingredients...how easy is that?! I hope you enjoy these as much as my family did.
