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


30 caramels, unwrapped

1 tablespoon Land O Lakes® Half & Half

1/2 cups chopped pecans

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 325°F.

  2. STEP 2

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

  3. STEP 3

    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.

  4. STEP 4

    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.

Tip #1

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