Okay we can do it, but not until I go shopping. I don't have butter or enough flour for now, but I'll try to keep the pecans on hand.

I don't know when the next shopping trip will be. They hand out the monthly schedule on the first.

It'll be our project. Should we start a thread?

I love pecan sandies.

YUM! This is my basic shortbread recipe too! Except we put chocolate chips in domino shapes on it. No pecans allowed in our house til the allergic one moves out.

This is the thread my sweet Z! Let's have fun!

We can adapt it to anything you like. If we want to add flavorings or other nuts or fruits, we can do it.

Yummy...I have some Andes mints...they would be good baked into the shortbread.

Poor allergic people, they miss out on a lot!

I'm in. First I want better than store bought pecan sandies. First things first. I love the ideas of fruits and nuts. Keep those ideas coming.

Good thing you like the idea of nuts....

I think you could do any kind of nut you like. How about a pistachio cookie? Almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts...mixed nuts.

I would like to try dried cranberries...yum! Need something good to offset the butter!
