    Delicious squares - DH adored these even though he's usually far more interested in the savoury stuff on the table! Very rich and a little goes a long way. I made 1/2 recipe and baked in a 8" square pan for 22 minutes. Perfect! Thank you very much for a great recipe!

    These were EXCELLENT! I think they are even better than pecan pie. I over baked mine a little, but they were still delicious. Everyone who had one raved about them. Thanks for a great new recipe!

    This really is like pecan pie but mabey not as gooey! I made the crust on a processor using frozen butter to assure it baked out light and tender, made these wonderful bars for my DS to enjoy, thanks for sharing hon!...Kitten:)

    If you like pecan pie you'll love these. They have a nice shortbread crust and a pecan pie like topping with the essence of honey. They were very easy to make. I used 1 and a half cubes of butter which is 12 tbsp because 1/3 cup is just over 6 tbsp. I used pecan chips. I was really tempted to add cinnamon to the topping but decided to stick to the recipe this time. One of my co-workers said this was her favorite thing I've brought so far and that's saying a lot because I've been bringing tons of baked goodies! It may be my oven but the edges were burnt at 25 minutes...so I just cut about 1/2 inch off around the sides and the rest was fine. Thanks for another ter-ruff-ic recipe cookiedog! Made for Zaar Tag.
