Sweet Melissa Sundays: Pecan Shortbread Cookies


The recipe for this Sweet Melissa Sunday is Pecan Shortbread Cookies chosen by Lara of The Lab.

These cookies are really easy to make…all you need is a food processor. I first used my food processor to chop up the pecans, then I poured those out and set it aside. I then proceeded with the rest of the recipe. Also, the “rolling in powdered sugar” part really didn’t work for me, so I just dusted the powdered sugar on top…

I tend to make bigger cookies…so instead of 3 dozens…I made 18 cookies. Each cookie is about two tablespoons. After scooping the cookies out, I rolled them into balls.

After they came out of the oven…

These cookies have got to be the LEAST photogenic cookies ever. I even tried adding a filter to “soften” them…
…still didn’t work…

These cookies kind of remind me of these Snowballs I made Christmas 2008…
but these Snowballs tasted better…:/ These Pecan Shortbread Cookies were, in my opinion, a little on a hard side. The snowballs I made before had a melt-in-your-mouth quality to them…mmmMMM

    • Thanks Leslie!!
      Although yours don’t really look anything like mine (or anyone else’s), that’s what made it special!!! I like how you saved it!!! Good for you!!! I’d probably have panicked and cried (just kidding), but I most likely wouldn’t know what to do…:P

  1. I’m sorry you didn’t get on too well with these – mine had that melty quality but there seems to be a fair variation in results this week… Your other snowball cookies look great! R x

    • Yeah, it held its shape. :). I’m sorry yours spreaded out. I’ve had that happen to a white chip macadamia cookie before. I think it’s cause by the butter not blended well enough into the flour. That’s the only thing I can think of. The cookies I made before may have still had tiny chunks of butter, so when it melted, it turned to liquid oil and spread.
