You need to make these scrumptious shortbread biscuits, melted Cadbury chocolate, dipped half in chocolate, and sprinkled with pecans.

Shortbread or shortie is a traditional Scottish biscuit usually made from one part white sugar, two parts butter, and three to four parts plain wheat flour. Unlike many other biscuits and baked goods, shortbread does not contain any leavening, such as baking powder or baking soda.
