Cookie Recipe of the Week:
Pecan Caramel Shortbread

To some, Pecan Caramel Shortbread might qualify not only as a luscious variation of classic shortbread recipe, but also as a tart.

The crust largely follows the time-honored ratio in shortbread’s traditional three key ingredients: one part sugar, two parts butter, and three parts white flour. But this version’s filling is so thick and rich that it can be eaten with a fork as a dessert.

You decide.

Prep time: 20-30 minutes
Bake time: 30-40 minutes, divided
Makes about 18-24 triangular wedges
