Pecan Pie Squares
Comments Kimberly Pearce of Amory, Mississippi, "I'm always on the lookout for recipes that are quick and easy to prepare. A neighbor shared this fast favorite with me. The chewy bars taste just like pecan pie."
Total TimePrep: 10 min. Bake: 30 min. + cooling
- 3 eggs
- 2-1/4 cups packed brown sugar
- 2 cups self-rising flour
