Butter Pecan Turtle Bars

READY IN: 33mins
Recipe by Kittencal@recipezazz

Tastes similar to the Turtle's candy, but with a crust, and made in a baking pan...absolutely delicious...a wonderful treat!

These were tasty. The middle got a little hard - a bit difficult to cut (and I baked for 18 minutes). It also seemed like the crust was really thick and didn't brown up enough, but I couldn't see if it was browning because the brown sugar layer covered it completely. They did taste great and were easy.
