April is National Pecan Month! What a fantastic time to showcase a new flavor of the month here on the Panhandle Milling blog! This recipe for Pecan Shortbread cookies, with hints of citrus accenting the delicate flavor of toasted pecans, are just the perfect combination. They make fantastic garnishes to any frozen dessert and are also the most wickedly delicious base for a cheesecake crust! Because of the high-fat content, you can count on a shelf life of 7-10 days! Have fun with these! The home baker’s version is at the bottom of this post.
