Chewy Pecan Squares

Saturday, December 1, 2012

Hello and welcome to my "12 days of Christmas Cookies" mini-series. I will kick this off with a new recipe I tried this year - chewy pecan squares. These are so good because they taste like they have caramel in it, but they don't! Four simple ingredients make up this recipe. It is a Turtles inspired recipe shared throughout the web on many sites. Adding chopped pecans to the crust gives the bar a a nuttier taste. Enjoy!
