Pecan Shortbread or Sandies- Either way don’t miss this recipe!
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
1 cup PDCC Praline Pecans, medium
Preheat oven to 350 degrees, with racks in upper and lower thirds.
In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy; beat in vanilla and salt. With mixer on low, gradually add flour, beating just until combined. Fold in Pecan Deluxe Praline Pecans.
Roll dough into 1 1/2-inch balls, and place on 2 baking sheets, 2 inches apart. Lightly flatten each ball using the dampened end of a glass cup.
Bake until cookies are golden brown, 15 to 17 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through. Transfer to wire racks, and let cool.
