Reviews for Honey Pecan Triangles
"Love the flavors of these nutty triangles!"
"Wow!! What a combo of flavors and yummy!!"
"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."
"These are soooo good! I made it once with honey and the second time with light corn syrup. The edges can get crispy, but for most people I made these for, this was their favorite part."
"Have been making these since can't remember when. Have been hearing ," Are you making those this year-please." They are easy to make and better to eat!"
"oops... i forgot to rate this recipe i would give it a 10 star rating if there was one.........I have been making these for family and friends about six years now and everyboby loves them. They tell me that it reminds them of baklava. Very rich and yummy"
