    Annacia's Note:

    In these bars, a buttery shortbread crust is topped with a very nutty mixture. The rich result is somewhat reminiscent of pecan pie.

      5 + stars. I knew by the title to this recipe that I couldn't go wrong. I've made something similar to these b/f, but not with the added instant coffee. That taste really comes thru nicely, but if you're not a coffee lover then I'd either eliminate entirely or go a little lighter. Thanks Annacia. This one will be used and made often. These would also make for a great bar for holiday trays!! Made for NewestZaarTag.~
