SMS – Pecan Shortbread Cookies (no sweet potato bread)

Better (waaaay) late than never, right?

I don’t know how it happened but I managed to forget to post about these. I baked them and photographed them on time… I just didn’t remember to blog about them. Woopsy! I must have been hella busy because baking and my assignments are usually on my mind.

Anyway, these were good. Not GREAT but good. I had to dunk the cookies in powdered sugar THREE times to make sure that I didn’t end up with another case of the missing powdered sugar.

I much prefer my go-to pecan sandies over these.

Speaking of powdered sugar… I never quite know what to call it. Powdered sugar? Confectioners sugar? They are the same thing but I noticed that I flip flop between the two. What do you call it?

Up next week: Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler Pie (which, I’ll have you know, I’ve already made and photographed! Now to blog it, before I forget again)

  1. I use powdered sugar. Personally, I found this recipe interesting, but then again I had a whole layer of cheesecake on top! haha.

    I know your feeling. I have a blog post..that I have pictures for, just not written up.

  2. I think I tend to call it powdered sugar when I speak, but I type confectioners’ sugar – weird! Your cookies look yummy, great pics 🙂 I’m not a huge pecan fan so I didn’t love these plus they were sort of crumbly.

  3. I also usually call it powdered sugar. I wonder if it varies by the area of the country?

    I am in agreement on the cookies. A good cookie, but probably not one I’ll make again despite the ease of making them.
