I was in a mood for shortbread, so I decided to try out Dorie Greenspan's Pecan Shortbread.
Should I describe my attempt as a failure? A fiasco? An unmitigated flop?
I don't know what I did wrong, but whatever it was, my "wrongness" was major.
Too much butter?
Not enough flour?
I thought I measured everything correctly, but apparently NOT.
Instead of nice, sharp edged squares, everything spread into one thin sheet of butter, sugar, pecans, and flour. It tasted good (like pecan taffy), but it was definitely unappealing.
Oh well, file this one under "misadventures".
