Like shortbread cookies, butter cookies are made without baking powder or baking soda. They are supposed to be a crunchy, buttery cookie. Perhaps that is the reason for the previous reviewers problems with the recipe.

I think the submitter forgot to list the baking powder in the recipe. Anyhow, I caught the ommission and added a 1/2 tsp of baking powder (had to guess). After I baked the cookies (I upped the temp to 325), the pecan halves fell out. I haven't completely given up on this recipe, though. Next time I will crush the pecans and mix them into the dough. I will probably use 1/4 less flour, too.

I too did not have praline liqueur so I substituted Amereto and substituted almonds for the pecans. These cookies are fabulous. I will be making a triple batch next time because a double batch went so fast I could not store any. Thank you for a new favorite :)
