Chocolate-Dipped Pecan Shortbread Cookies

Warm their hearts with these quick and easy Chocolate-Dipped Pecan Shortbread Cookies. Perfect for gifting as a Valentine’s Day treat. 

Makes 2 dozen


1/2 c. Pecans (coarsely chopped)
2 c. All-purpose flour
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. granulated sugar
3/4 c. butter (cubed)
12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Coarsely chop pecans in a food processor.
Add chopped pecans to the mixer bowl with flour and sugars. Add cubes
of butter and mix until dough begins to clump together. On a floured
surface, knead dough until it holds together. Cut dough in half and roll
out with rolling pin. With a cookie cutter, cut heart shapes, then transfer
to an ungreased cookie sheet. For decoration, prick with a fork at 1/2
inch intervals (optional). Bake cookies for 20-25 minutes or until golden.
Transfer cookies to wire rack to cool. In a double boiler over medium heat,
stir gently while the chocolate chips melt. Dip half of cooled cookie in
chocolate, shaking gently to remove excess chocolate. Dry on wire rack
and store or gift on layered sheets of waxed paper.


Hugs out! Laura
