Browned Butter-Pecan Shortbread
38 mins (prep 30, cooking 8)
5 ingredients
makes about 10 1/2 dozen
These rich-tasting pecan shortbread cookies are not overly sweet and are a great addition to a holiday appetizer and dessert buffet.  Because of the amount of butter in the cookies, they crumble easily, so be careful when placing them on the platter.   If you have some cookies that crumble, just use them as a topping for ice cream.
