These were so yummy, even better than pecan pie according to DH! The crust was nice and flakey, I used butter instead of margarine, I just prefer the taste of butter. I was careful not to overbake, as I didn't want them to be dry, we like them on the gooey side LOL!... These are a winner, and I will be making them again. Thanks so much for posting Paula...delicious!...Kitten:)
Made up a batch of these to take to the beach yesterday - we came home with not a crumb left (literally, the kids kept scoonching down with their index fingers to get the last crumbs!). I used walnuts instead of pecans (hard to come by in Greece) and loved every bite.
These were so good I had to make a second batch the next day, so that the person that I had made them for could get one. Oops!
