When we left Texas to head north, a neighbor gave me pecans from his trees. I’m happy to send these nutty squares back to him, and he’s happy to get them. —Lorraine Caland, Shuniah, Ontario

I've made these a couple of times now and each time they got rave reviews, I think I have a new tradition.

These were an undeniable success with my family. I used walnuts instead of pecans but I'm sure it would be just as great with pecans. I used a bench knife to cut up the cookies but a sturdy spatula pressed straight down (instead of a knife) would do as well. Definitely remember to line the pan with parchment. It makes getting the cookies out a snap.
