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.
