Buttery Pecan Bars

Linda Stevens


If you like pecan pie, you will think you have died and gone to heaven when you try these!

My hubby doesn't care if I ever make pecan pie again. He prefers pecan bars now.

When my son-in-law comes to visit he always requests these.

Don't ruin them by using margarine! BUTTER!
