Best Pecan Shortbread Recipe
There is nothing quite like a good piece of shortbread and this recipe is outstanding. It will make your house smell good too. These are very easy to make.
Add 2 sticks of butter to your mixer bowl.
Add 1/2 cup of dark brown sugar and 1/2 cup of granulated sugar. Beat this with the paddle attachment for 3 minutes. It will be light and fluffy.
