MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 6, 2013

This was an easy recipe!! It tastes yummy! This makes a big jelly roll pan! Keep a few of the pecans whole!! I might drizzle white chocolate next time to add a little contrast!

These are yummy! I wouldn't say the crust gets golden brown though. I kept expecting it to and as a result I think I overcooked the crust. Definitely worth making, just keep to the lower range of cooking minutes.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 8, 2011

These were excellent tasting bars! I cooked mine for 25 minutes and that seemed to be perfect, but my oven seems to cook slower than it should. The edges are hard to cut, but once you get past that part, the bars make nice, clean cuts and are easy to remove from the pan. I don't know if making sure to grease extra good up near the edge of the pan would help or not.

MY REVIEW

Evidently I baked these a little to long. They were very firm around the edges and I had a hard time getting them out of the pan. The part in the center seemed fine.

I actually meant to give it 4 stars.
