Cranberry Pine Nut Shortbread

I just recently ran across this recipe but thinking I will try it with pecans.

1/2 cup butter melted
1/2 cup powder sugar
1/4 cup pine nuts toasted
1/4 cup dried cranberries chopped
1 cup all purpose flour

In a small bowl, combine butter, powder sugar, pine nuts and cranberries. Gradually add flour, mix well--dough will be stiff.

Press dough into an ungreased 9" sqare baking pan. Bake at 350 for 18-20 minutes or until edges begin to brown. cool for 5 minutes cut into squares. Continue to cool to room temperature. Store in an airtight container. Yield 16 cookies

This looks like a great recipe. Using pecans is a good idea.
