Maple Pecan shortbread is a festive autumn cookie, especially when i use a maple leaf cookie cutter. They always sold well throughout October and November and created lots of yums and smiles. For this test i selected two gluten-free recipes. For the third recipe, I adapted my favorite gluten version.
My ever faithful tasters have scored the three GF recipes and shared their highest scores for recipes #2 and #3. I reviewed the ingredients and the proportions of the winners and then rearranged them into a new GF Maple Pecan shortbread cookie.
This new cookie has some of the delicate qualities of #2 and some of the caramel accent of #3.
I would use the new recipe for any kitchen-to-table affairs such as family dinners or entertaining friends. For postal travel i would use recipe #3. Enjoy!
