Pecan bars from The Fat Witch Bakery
By Lynnda Cloutier eatygourmet
sometimes you feel like a nut. Sometimes you also feel like a drink. Full of pecans and flavored with a dip of rum, these bars fit the bill. The recipe is unfussy and easy to adapt. Use walnuts, hazelnuts, or any nut combination. You can also omit the rum and they will still be fabulous. Eating one is like devouring the warm, gooey part of the pecan pie with your fingers. A scoop of vanilla ice cream makes it even more luscious.
Mix the flour, baking powder, salt and Brown sugar with a fork. Add to butter one piece at a time, mixing after each until well blended.
Remove from the oven and let cool on a rack for two hours. Cut just before serving. Makes 12 to 16

OVER THE TOP LYNNDA, These sound Fabulous!!!
Definately a KEEPEr in my book.
I do Certification classes and get tired of always Bringing DONUTS, for the classes to go along with the Coffee I serve.
This sounds like One I could use for a treat, and they may enjoy.
I might have to Double the recipe or make 2 batches to have enough.
Next Question, Just how Messy are these before I serve a class and Have to Clean up the Room before I leave of Goooy ness??
