Toffee Nut Shortbread Recipe

I had sort of a cookie baking marathon yesterday. I’m just about finished with my Christmas Cookie Plates. One of the cookies I made are my Toffee Nut Shortbread Cookies. Shortbread is one of my all time favorites.


Today I’d like to share the recipe with you.

You will need:

1 cup Butter

1/2 cup Confectioners Sugar

1 tsp Vanilla Extract

1 3/4 cup Flour

1/2 cup Cornstarch

1/4 tsp Salt

1/2 cup finely chopped Pecans

1/2 cup finely chopped Butterscotch Chips

1/2 cup English Toffee Bits


Start by creaming together the Butter and Confectioners Sugar.

Stir in the Vanilla

In a separate bowl combine the Flour, Cornstarch and Salt.  Gradually add to the butter mixture. Stir in the Nuts, Chips and Bits.

Roll into a log. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 2 hours before slicing.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10 – 12 minutes on an ungreased cookie sheet until lightly browned.

As you can see I’ve made some squarish ones by molding the log into a rectangle before slicing. It makes for a bit of variety.
