Recipe: Almond Shortbread

As you have most likely noticed, A Goldberry Perspective, now has a new aspect: Recipes.  I found it necessary to add this page because I am very fond of delectables, and I am sure Goldberry was as well, in spite of her slim figure!  This is one of my favourite recipes; it's delicious, easy and quick.

Almond Shortbread

1 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 tea. almond extract
2 1/2 cup flour
1 cup chocolate chips
3/4 - 1 cup pecans (optional)

Cream butter sugar and almond. Stir in flour, 'till smooth, mix in chocolate and pecans.  Press into 9"x13" pan, bake at °325F (°163C)  for 25 minutes or until no longer shiny.  Sprinkle with sugar and cut while warm.   Enjoy!
