Glad I'm not the only one with a shortbread weakness.
Thanks for the feedback, Barbara-this time of year, "easy" is in!

To a place here in town that machine shells pecans. They have a little gift shop and sell pecan stuff too. Took in 17# today so should be in good shape and never know, might even share some!! LOL

Anytime, Ginger! Just don't blame me when the clothes no longer fit-LOL! Know you don't like them but we made some really good Gingerbread cookies when we were at our son's for Christmas.

I can ask a dumb question?

1 1 /4c finely chopped pecans

Is that One AND a quarter cup of nuts (which sounds like too much) or just 1/4 cup of pecans?

I never realized that these are so similar to what I call "Butter Balls" and others call "Mexican Wedding Cakes" - really scrumptious! (Someone pointed out the similarity somewhere today on either the R/E or the C/F - anyway, this would be easier, you don't have to roll, and roll, and roll!)

My Mexican Wedding Cakes call for white sugar though and these use brown so you have a bit of a different flavor, Woodie.
