  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice, cloves, and baking powder. Mix in the butter using a fork until well blended. The dough will be flaky and separated. Stir in the pecans, and press into an 8 inch square pan.
  3. Bake for 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly browned on the top. Cut into squares while still warm, but do not remove from the pan. Allow to cool, then dust with confectioners' sugar.

I loved this recipe! It was SO quick to mix everything, and I liked that I didn't have to get out the hand mixer. I cut the shortbread into squares shortly after taking it out of the oven, and p...

I love this take on the classic shortbread. Mine turned out a little dry but is perfect with a cup of tea!

This shortbread is awesome. I did not have pumpkin pie spice so I used the spices as suggested by a previous reviewer and it came out perfect!

This was wonderful! I had fresh pecans from my daughters tree and i cracked them myself so I think that added to the incredible flavor. followed it exactly and wouldn't change a thing!

These came out really dry for me. Maybe I did something wrong? The flavor was great though.
