    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    One of my favorite bars, this works well also with walnuts! The shortbread crust is light and buttery, make certain to make the crust only on a processor, mixing by hand will produce a harder textured crust, also make certain to pour the topping over the crust when it is hot out of the oven, so prepare the topping while the crust is baking, the filling takes only minutes to make! Yield is only estimated depending on size of bars. Cooking time is for both crust and topping.

      This is a crowd favorite, even with those who don't like pecans! But to make these exceptional, increase the pecans by 50% and for ease, use pecan chips. I cut these bars into 1inch squares which seems to be the perfect size for consumption.

      I live in Germany and it is rare that I find pecans, however, the other day at the store I found the mother-load, so I stocked up. I tried this recipe and I followed it to a T, but there was something just a bit odd. It tasted wonderful, don't get me wrong, just something with the consistency. As I said, I can't really put my finger on it. I'll try these again to see how it goes though. Thanks Kittencal!

      As usual, Kittencal's recipe does not disappoint - these were are hit at my sister's Southern Hospitality party in northern Michigan this summer! Do chill them before cutting; use a sharp knife and a little muscle and you'll be good to go.
