Ingredients

Cookie

1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1/4 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

Topping

30 unwrapped caramels
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Directions

Heat oven to 325°F. Combine butter, powdered sugar and brown sugar in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add flour, baking powder and salt; beat at low speed until well mixed.

Press dough evenly into 8-inch square baking pan lined with aluminum foil; prick with tines of fork every 1/2 inch. Bake 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Lift cookies from pan using aluminum foil. Immediately cut into 20 (approximately 4x1/2 inch) sticks. Cool completely.

Place caramels and half & half in microwave-safe bowl. Microwave, stirring twice, 1-2 minutes or until caramels are melted. Dip ends of shortbread sticks into melted caramel mixture; roll in pecans. Place onto waxed paper; let stand until set.

Recipe Tip

For gift giving, wrap each shortbread stick in clear plastic food wrap or cellophane gift bags; tie ends with decorative ribbon.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

Dipping the shortbread in caramel is the trickiest part of this recipe. Reheat the caramel if it gets too thick. These are great for gifts and alternatives to the pecans can be used, such as almonds, oreo crumbs, chocolate sprinkles, etc.
