The Twelve Cookies of Christmas -- Fifth Day

Pecan lovers will delight in this cookie...buttery, crisp, loaded with pecans, and chewy with a bit of sweet to balance the savory notes.

Pecan Pie Bars (makes approximately 28 squares)

Ingredients:

2 cups sifted flour

2/3 cup sifted powdered sugar

3/4 cup butter, softened

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1/2 cup honey

2/3 cup butter

3 T heavy whipping cream

3 1/2 cups coarsely chopped pecans

Directions:

1. For crust: Cut softened butter into sifted flour and powdered sugar until mix resembles coarse meal. Pat into lightly greased 13x9 pan so that you create a crust on the bottom and up the sides of the pan about 1 and 1/2 inches. Bake for 20 minutes in 350 degree oven until edges are light brown. Cool.

2. For filling: Bring brown sugar, honey, butter and honey to a boil over medium high heat. Stir in pecans and pour over cooled crust. Bake for 25-30 minutes in 350 degree oven. Cool completely before cutting into 2" squares. Store in tin between waxed paper.
