"Great. Had a hard time dissolving the brown sugar. How long should it take?"
"These are so yummy! My husband asked if I'd make them again because I'd taken them to a meeting and he hadn't gotten enough! They were very easy as well."
"So easy and yummy!!"
"Toasted the pecans (5 minutes at 350 degrees) and cooled them before adding. Mixed it all in the saucepan I melted the butter. Took about 35-40 minutes to bake in a 10 x 10 pan. Cut beautifully, tasted amazing - a keeper! 5 stars!"
