Pecan Caramel Shortbread Ingredients

  • 1½ cups softened butter (3 sticks)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3½ cups flour
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1½ cups chopped pecans
  • Caramel for drizzling
  • Pecan halves (optional)
  • 1 Heirloom Cookie Sheet

Directions

Blend together butter and sugar until combined. Add the vanilla. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour and salt; add to the butter/sugar mixture. Mix on low speed until the dough starts to come together. Stir in chopped pecans.

 

Shape dough into a flat disc. Wrap in plastic and chill for an hour.

 

Roll dough out to ½ inch thickness and cut into squares or shape desired. Place on ungreased Heirloom Cookie Sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 20–25 minutes or until edges slightly begin to brown. Remove immediately from cookie sheet and cool on wire rack. Cool completely.

 

While caramel is melting, place cookies on waxed paper. Drizzle caramel over each cookie and let cool.

 

Option: while drizzled caramel is still warm, place a pecan half on top of cookie.

"Just wanted to tell you how delighted I am with my new cookie sheets. They are really thick and heavy. A first class material! I had to think about this purchase, because of the price, but as I can now see, they are worth every dime!" ~ Beverly

"I’ve been baking quite a bit and have actually been looking for the ideal cookie sheet. This one gets my vote as a definite improvement from my traditional sheet. The cookies were light brown and perfectly baked and beautiful. Yum!" ~ Julian P., Minneapolis, MN

"I do a lot of experimental baking and had a batch of cookie dough ready. I baked the cookies on my new Heirloom sheet and on two other sheets, one was stainless, the other was a non stainless sheet with a clear non-stick finish and has gotten great reviews on the internet. The Heirloom sheet outperformed both of the others, especially the non-stick sheet which produced cookies that were overbrowned on the bottom. The Heirloom sheet produced cookies that were the same degree of brown on the tops and bottoms. I did not use parchment and I did not grease the sheets–the cookies came right off and there was not much residue to clean up. I love baking on stainless and hope Heirloom expands their line of bakeware. To add icing to the cake, these cookie sheets are “Made in USA”. I will be a repeat customer!" ~ Kathy

"The Heirloom Cookie Sheet is a simple, but ingenious piece of kitchen equipment. Someone finally made what we needed, a heavy duty stainless steel baking sheet that gives you the ability to produce consistent results. Treat it properly, and you will be able to hand it down, along with your recipes, from generation to generation." ~ Kurt

"I used my Heirloom today and thought it was great! My son even said the cookies were ‘perfect’!
I never expected such a compliment from my son and let me tell you, it was the best compliment ever! Thank you so much!!" ~ Mary Ann
