    Lennie's Note:

    I have not yet tried this, but it is from an overdue library book (From Our Mothers' Kitchens) and I want to return the book tomorrow, so need to get the recipes I want to try copied down, pronto. I am a big fan of maple syrup and am convinced these squares will be delicious. According to Anita Stewart, the author of the book, this recipe is several generations old.

      I made this last night, and was kind of dissappointed. The cookie type layer on the bottom was ok, but a bit too floury tasting. The layer on top was very watery, and even though you would think that maple syrup and brown sugar mixed together would have a nice taste, it really didn't have much of a taste at all. With the pecans I also threw in some leftover butterscotch chips I had, and this improved the taste a little bit. After it was cooked, the top layer was kind of gross looking, and when i tasted a peice, it tasted like eating a cookie with carmel popcorn on the top, minus the popcorn. They weren't terrible or anything, but i like a bar cookie with more of a thick consistency.
