For many months I have been on a quest for the perfect shortbread recipe. You would think it would be pretty easy to make this simple cookie, but no….All i ever wanted was a soft and crumbly cookie with that rich yet light buttery flavor. Somewhere deep in my heart I believe the downfall of these cookies lies in my refusal to use real butter. What can I say??? I like to keep it parve ya’ll ….Anyways to make a 25 recipe long story short, I finally hit on a cookie with the perfect flavor, but a deep lackage in texture… Soon after, I baked this here recipe which has that texture i have been longing for , but not the precise flavor I pine for….
Without further ado
Kinda Bland, Good Mouth Feel Cookies
Preheat oven to 325
1 cup margarine
1 1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup icing sugar
1 generous splash of vanilla
1 generous splash of almond extract
1/2 cup chopped pecans
So there you have it folks! They ain’t pretty, and they don’t taste that great.
Curiously, within an hour of baking, they were nowhere to be found………
