    MA HIKER's Note:

    These are so amazingly delicious! I make them at Thanksgiving each year and even though they are so rich, they go very quickly. The secret to the great flavor is toasting the pecans - it makes a huge difference.

      I had some issues with this recipe, and I think it's mainly because I tried to halve it. The amounts just weren't quite right, I don't think, and it took a lot longer to bake that what I thought it would. It turned out kind of soupy, and the crust was falling apart. The flavor was good, but they weren't really "bars" - the only way to eat them was in a bowl with a spoon. I will probably try to make them again using the full recipe to see if I get better results.

      These are delicious treats that are fairly simple to make. Just be sure you keep a close eye on the butter/sugar mixture because if it cooks too long you will have toffee instead of pie. (I made this discovery by answering the phone while this was cooking - LOL!) This is a great dessert for holidays or guests. Thank you for sharing your yummy recipe with us Ma Hiker!
