As soon as the butter gets to room temperature I'm going to try out PrincessFiona's pecan shortbread cookies. I will substitute walnuts, 'cause I don't have any pecans. I'm only making half the recipe. The last time my DH had shortbread (store bought), he didn't like it.

Hey, one of the nicest things you can do is to give yourself a pat on the back. You go, girl.

My brain went on vacation while I was measuring and adding the flour. I made half the recipe, so I add 1/2 cup at a time. And then, I wasn't sure if I had added that last 1/2 cup of flour.

I PMed PrincessFi in a panic. She gave me suggestions for testing. Well, those cookies are fabulous. My DH likes them. I don't know how I will manage to stop eating them before they run out.

I made them with 1/2 hard and 1/2 soft, whole grain wheat flour. I haven't seen all purpose, whole grain, wheat flour since the early '80s, so that's what I do instead. No one would notice that they are "healthy".

BTW, the recipe is here: Pecan Shortbread Cookies

I will definitely be making those again.
