SMS: Pecan Shortbread Cookies
This week’s Sweet Melissa recipe is Pecan Shortbread Cookies, though when I handed Josh one to try he asked if they were Mexican Wedding Cookies, which Melissa also compares them to. Whatever you want to call them, they’re incredibly yummy and I ate more than I intended to. They’re small, so it’s easy to do. We tried them plain and they were tasty, but the powdered sugar coating really makes the cookie. It’s also a wonderfully quick recipe to make, all done in the food processor. The one downside? The cookies are kind of messy to eat and you can easily end up with powdered sugar down your shirt or cookie crumbs on the ground.
We rated the cookies an 8 for Deliciousness and a 2 for Effort, for an EDR of 4. Many thanks to Lara of The Lab for selecting this excellent recipe. You can find the recipe here on Lara’s site and visit the SMS blogroll to see what the other bakers thought of this treat.
