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.
These are pretty dang good! Reminiscent of 'ooey gooey' bars, the crunch from the pecans added some nice texture! I followed the recipe, as directed; thanks for sharing a great recipe, weekend cooker!
