Reviews forHoney Pecan Triangles
"Love the flavors! I had a bit of a hard time cutting mine... end up having to eat the edges too as they seemed a bit over cooked."
"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!"
