Shortbread cookies melt in your mouth. I've never come across anyone who doesn't like them. These buttery treats are irresistible.
- 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans or walnuts
- 2 sticks butter softened
- 2/3 cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
Mix all ingredients with mixer until very crumbly. Take your hands and shape into a ball and put in refrigerator until solid enough to pinch off a piece and flatten on a hard surface. Cut out shapes with cookie cutters.
Bake on greased cookie sheet at 350 degrees about 25 minutes. Just before removing from oven turn on broiler for about 45 seconds and let brown on top.
