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.

Add 1 cup of finely ground pecans, 1 tsp. of salt and 1 tsp. vanilla.  Beat for 3 more minutes.  Beat in 2  1/2 cups flour.

Place it in an oblong pan and score.

Press a pecan half into each square.  Bake at 300 degrees for about an hour until they look dry.
