pecan graham bars



Ingredients
 
2 sticks of real unsalted butter
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 and 3/4 cups chopped pecans
1 box of graham crackers
 
Method
 
Line a cookie sheet with foil and place a layer of whole graham crackers on pan
Boil mixture of butter, brown sugar and pecans in microwave for 2 minutes
Pour mixture over graham crackers and spread evenly
Bake for 10 minutes @ 325, cool and break into pieces (I find it easier to cut into pieces)
 
 
I know we all just finished with the holidays and most of us are trying to eat healthy, but I wanted to share this super easy, yummy recipe.  With only 4 ingredients and 4 steps, it is seriously the easiest dessert to whip up.  I got the recipe last Thanksgiving from my mom and sister.  My sweet grandma picked, cracked and peeled me these pecans from her trees this Fall and gave me a whole large butter container full.  So, I made these to bring to both of our family Christmases and they didn't last long.  They are scrumptious and if you need a treat to take to your next gathering and time is an issue, these will deliver! 
 
Enjoy!
