Made this this weekend. They are yummy. I think the original title of this recipe is Pecan Cream Cheese Squares. I found it in the February/March 2000 issue of Taste of Home. It was submitted by Dorothy Pritchett who says, "This rich, easy dessert is perfect after a light meal." I made it with chopped mixed nuts instead of just pecans, and it turned out well. Got many comments.
