Recipe: Pecan Slices & Tea Bag Biscuits by Aniseeds

Happy Monday all! Let's start the week on a sweet note with these beautiful cookies we enjoyed over the weekend. I had a few family members over for lunch and once the festivities were over, I was finally able to snap a picture of some of the treats including homemade pecan nut short bread. I learned how to make these from my beautiful mother years ago and it's a recipe I enjoy using when I need something quick and easy but tasty. I also baked teabag shaped biscuits dipped in chocolate and tagged them with existing teabag labels. 😄 The ❤ shaped cookies were brought through from my cousin in law and my beautiful decor board was given to me as a gift from my cousin Shakeera! I trust that everyone had a spectacular weekend and here's to hoping that this week follows suit!
