How to Make It

Step 1

Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until fluffy; add honey, brown sugar, and vanilla, and beat until blended, stopping to scrape down sides. Gradually add flour, beating at low speed until blended. Stir in pecans.

Step 2

Press dough evenly into bottom of an ungreased 9-inch square pan.

Step 3

Bake at 300° for 55 to 65 minutes or until golden (begin checking for doneness at 50 minutes just in case your oven runs hot). Let cool in pan on a wire rack. Cut into bars. Store in an airtight container.

Step 4

Note: This shortbread can also be baked in an ungreased 10-inch cast-iron skillet, if desired.
