  • 3 tbs Amelia's Hot & Spicy Pecans
  • ½ cup or 100 gm all purpose white flour
  • large pinch of sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 40 gm or 1.4 oz goat cheese
  • spicy paprika
  • 3 tbsp melted unsalted butter (if using salted butter omit salt above)
  1. Preheat oven to 180 c or 356f and line a cookie sheet with baking paper, set aside. Place pecans in a blender and pulse for a couple of seconds until they break up. Don't overdo it, we don't want them to be pulverized.
  2. Roll the goat cheese in some spicy paprika and set aside. In a large bowl mix together the flour, sugar, salt, and ground pecans until well combined. Next crumble the goat cheese into the flour mixture and stir to combine. Pour the melted butter into the bowl while stirring, until a crumbly mix is achieved. Gather the crumbly dough and place on floured surface. Flatten out to an even level and slice into even sized squares or use a cookie cutter to cutout desired shapes.
  3. Place on baking sheet bake in center of oven for 8-10 minutes. Check after 8 minutes and do not allow shortbreads to brown. Allow to cool completely before enjoying.
This recipe makes 10-12 shortbreads, feel free to double is desired.
