    This is an Ina Garten recipe. Watched her make this on her show and had to get the recipe. This is NOT for the calorie counter! Dip one end in melted chocolate for and extra special treat.

      Remove from the oven and allow to cool.

      These pecan squares are delicious! The only change that I would make is to cut the recipe for the crust in half, but make all of the topping. I would definately make these again if only they didn't have so many calories and fat! But if you do make these, make sure that you but a slightly larger baking sheet on a lower oven rack to catch the drippings from the topping--it will boil over if you make the full recipe.
