Doll's Shortbread

Traditional shortbread is plain and doesn't have eggs. This one has one egg for a binder and is quite delicious. It is basic and simple, a treat that you can enjoy warm or room temperature, alone or even serve with fresh fruit and a side of cream!

Doll, btw, is one of my many nicknames!

Doll's Shortbread

1 stick butter, room temp
1/2 c walnut oil
2 c whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 c demerrera sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 large egg
1/2 c chopped pecans
1/2 c chopped semisweet or dark chocolate

Preheat oven to 325 F.

Combine butter, oil, sugar, flour and salt until combined and crumbly. Add egg until just combined (do not overmix!!) Add in nuts and chocolate, you can use a wooden spoon or plastic spatula for this, just make sure that it is all evenly distributed.

Bake 25 minutes, then enjoy!
