Honey Pecan Squares

dsc04669

 Delightful flavor of buttery honey chewy and gooey pecans.

For the crust:

  • 2 cups of flour
  • 2/3 powdered sugar
  • 2 sticks of butter (yes, use butter no substitutes)

Spray with oil or grease 9 x 13 preheat oven 350F. Mix flour and sugar then cut in butter until it forms a fine crumb. Bake for 20 minutes.

For the topping:

  • 2/3 cup butter (11 Tablespoons)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 brown sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons milk
  • 3 1/2 cups of coarsely chopped pecans (or walnuts)

While crust is baking melt butter, add honey, brown sugar, milk and pecans.

Once the crust is finished baking top with pecan mixture and bake for another 25 minutes.  Cool completely before before cutting.  If you happen to have any left over they can be frozen. Later take one out warm in the microwave and top with ice cream.

I think next week recipe will be Award Winning Turkey Chili.

  1. Paula!! My mouth is watering and it’s only 7 in the morning, they sound evil! I wonder if maple syrup could be switched out for the honey. Oh slurrrp!

  2. Louise – I think they would be delish with maple syrup. Sit back with one of these and a cup of tea…can’t get any better.

  3. OMG!!!! I wish I NEVER found this!!! I gues that extra 25 lbs isn’t comming off any time soon:) lol
