In Hawaii, there are fierce competitions to see who makes the best shortbread - many aunties swear they make the best one, and some have taken their recipes and "secret ingredients" to the grave with them. I adapted this recipe from a friend who shared her secret with me.

Yummm...I love shortbread. When you add chocolate, pecans and toffee- this one is a must have! 

The next time I make this I may add some additional pecans in the shortbread dough. The Test Kitchen
