Pecan Chocolate Christmas Shortbread Cookies - Lovely and crunchy Christmas Cookies with pecan core, drizzled with chocolate, very easy to make. Pecan Chocolate Shortbread Cookies are excellent on cold winter days with a cup of hot beverage. They are ideal for Christmas and other festive occasions because they can be prepared a few days earlier.
  • 1 cup pecan halves
  • ¾ cup unbleached all-purpose flour (+ more for dusting)
  • 2 Tbsp cornstarch
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar
  • ⅓ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 Tbsp hazelnut oil (optional)
  • 2 tsp rum
  • 60g dark chocolate, melted
  1. Finely grind ½ cup of pecan halves.
  2. In a large bowl mix pecans, flour, sugar, and cornstarch. Add the butter, oil, and rum and mix until the dough begins to form. Using your hands, shape the dough into a disc, cover in plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
  3. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  4. Dust with flour surface and roll out the dough. Cut cookies with desired cutters. Move cookies on the baking sheet and place pecan halves on the cookies.
  5. Bake 15-20 minutes (depend on the thickness of the cookies).
  6. In a small saucepan, over low heat, melt chocolate. When the cookies are cooled completely, drizzle the melted chocolate over.
