Dense and buttery, this cookie is closely related to shortbread, which originated as a holiday treat in ancient Scotland.

    This recipe doesn't look like much, but it really is VERY delicious. Highly recommend it. Make sure to get fresh pecans...

    These are really tasty and they look great w/ the other Christmas cookies. Had to make two changes: my husband is allergic to wheat, but tolerates spelt flour, so I subbed 1 1/3 c white spelt and 2/3 c whole spelt for the flour and I think the bake time is a misprint, 10-15 min seemed to work fine. Or maybe it was b/c of the spelt?
