Flavours of Pays de la #Loire: If you’re a sucker for sweet #pastries, don’t miss the candy shops. Berlingots nantais, quernons d'ardoise in Anjou, the brioches of Vendée, the shortbreads in Retz or from Sablé-sur-Sarthe...these delicacies spell happiness for the gourmet. Make your own #ShortBread and #PIN your pics !
Butter Pecan Shortbread Cookies from Food.com: Shortbread cookies are a must to make for the holidays, and these pecan-filled, buttery biscuits are simply irresistible. Be sure to use real butter, not margarine, for best flavor. PLEASE, watch them as they bake. Reviewers are reporting baking times from 12 to 20 mins and I have changed the baking time from the original 30 mins to 15 mins.
Previous Pinner: Since I've two children that love almost all things coconut I'm constantly looking for "more better" recipes for cookies and all things coconut. Myself, I would call these Macaroon cookies 'cause they aren't exactly true Macaroons. As a cookie they are very fabulous, wait until they cool about an hour (as the recipe suggests).
