I’m your enabler today.
These addictive Butterscotch Pecan Shortbread Cookies are basically a butter-and-sugar delivery system.
But oh, what a way to go.
I took these to a recent Food Bloggers Los Angeles holiday cookie exchange party, and they were right at home along with the many other delectables on the table.
This was the first time I had made these, which is a Gail Simmons recipe I cut out from People Magazine. I couldn’t resist tweaking it, though — adding pecans, greatly increasing the butterscotch chips, decreasing the salt, 86ing the chocolate dipping.
You will have to smack your own hand to keep from reaching for these over and over. Just remind yourself it’s Christmas time, and it’s proper to share.
Bring a big plate of Butterscotch Pecan Shortbread Cookies to your work party and get a nice big high-five.
