Looking at new recipes for Christmas cookies...

I made these to try them out for my Christmas cookie collection and OMG they are sooooo good I just had to share.



TIPS*** I doubled the recipe and cooked it in a 9x13-inch pan and baked it for 30 min.
I added 1 cup of chopped pecans to the caramel layer.
I also made the shortbread layer in my food processor with cold butter instead of softening the butter. I think it makes a much more tender shortbread.

Thanks, I'll do that. I have a hard time looking at Food Networks website. I live out in the boonies and all we can get out here is dial up so it takes forever for it to load. But I'll just set it to load and then go do something else for a while and come back. Thanks for the tip.

Those look divine! I can practically taste the scrumptiousness! Adding the pecans was a good call.

Thanks for the tips guys...I'll check them out.

I have a collection of cookies that I make from year to year. I usually like to add one new recipe a year if I can find something that really blows my socks off. Unless I find something I like better than these cookies I'm adding them to my list.
