And, the week before that, I shared these lovely Fleur de Sel Chocolate Chip Blondies. Hopefully, no one minds the repetition. I, for one, adore the sweet and salty combo.

I wouldn't try to guess how many kinds of chocolate chip cookies I've made over the years. It's hard to grow tired of them, especially with all the different ways you can keep them interesting. Nuts, dried fruits, more nuts, maybe some oats. Or, in the case of this version, macadamia nuts and peanut butter chips.

Shortbread is one of the simple joys of the baking world. Usually, there are just a handful of ingredients. The effort is minimal. And, the simple flavors are just right.
Of course, throw some pecans into something, and I'm definitely on board. So, with those few ingredients and very little time, I had this shortbread in the oven. My kitchen was filled with the delightful aroma of buttery cookies and toasted pecans.
