I've been stirring up batches of these tasty bar cookies for many years, and they're a big hit wherever I share them. The bars have all the goodness of pecan pie and are so easy to serve to a crowd. -Debbie Fogel, East Berne, New York

"GREAT RECIPE! I made these for a New Year's bash and they were a huge hit! They taste like miniature pecan pie slices -- but not as sweet -- and that is a good thing! These are OUTSTANDING!!"

"OMG!!! These are so good. I made them for a dear friend and couldn't help digging in and before all was over, I ate half myself!!!

This is a recipe worth doing and (guess what) it is easy as well!!!"

"When I rate a recipe 3 stars means ordinary, 4 stars means much, much better than average, and 5 stars means super wonderfully great tasting. I'd give this recipe more than 5 stars if I could. This is my "go to" recipe when a really impressive goody is required."
