Pecan and Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies
  • 1 pound butter (softened to room temperature)
  • 1½ cups powdered sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 5 cups flour
  • 2 cups chopped pecans
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips ( I use mini chips)
  1. Combine butter, sugar, salt and vanilla. Beat until fluffy. Blend in flour, nuts and chocolate chips, mixing just until blended and clings together. Form into 12”x3”x2” logs. Wrap in plastic and chill for 6 hours or overnight. Cut into ¼- 3/8” slices. Bake on greased cookie sheets 1” apart @ 350° for 9-11 minutes, or until slightly brown. Cool on wire rack. May dust with powdered sugar, I like them plain.
