Reviews for Cashew-Pecan Pie Bars
Sort By :
"Fabulous taste - this is my new favorite "pecan pie" bar recipe. I will definitely be making/sharing this again and again! (I like them best when they are cold.)"
"I made these bars and they turned out hard as a rock. I couldn't even cut into them. Can anyone tell me what I did wrong?.. I'd like to make them again. email@example.com"
"I did make this and it is awesome! Very easy to do if you follow the directions, I used a grater to grate the butter rather than cube it because it makes cutting it into the flour much easier. Lining the pan with foil was genius and it made cooling and cutting it a breeze. Definitely will make this again."
"I must take exception to the glowing review from Maureen. Just because something sounds great doesn't necessarily mean it will be. I think reviews should be based on actual making of the recipe. I've tried tons of recipes that read great, but turned out less so, and I'm a good cook."
