Our mom loves shortbread cookies! We have a bakery here that makes such good shortbread cookies, and our mom would sometimes bring up a box for us to share. I can’t eat them without thinking of my mom (or sharing them with her haha). They don’t taste like your regular chocolate chip cookies, but we love them! These are perfect if you’re looking for a yummy treat to bring to a baby or wedding shower.
1 cup softened unsalted butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 3/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup semi sweet mini chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Mix softened butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. In a separate bowl, sift flour, baking powder, and salt together until mixed well. Slowly add dry ingredients into your butter and sugar mixture. Mix in chocolate chips and pecans. Roll dough into one inch balls and place on non-greased cookie sheet. flatten the dough balls just a little after placing them on the cookie sheet. Bake for 15 minutes. Enjoy!
