Butter Pecan Cookies

Today was the first time making these cookies, the now have the family stamp of approval. A little sweet, a little salty and a lot yummy. Definitely a favorite, the shortbread could stand alone if you wanted, or you could add nuts, chocolate chunks or some combination of them.
