Pecan Bars

As promised...the recipe for pecan bars!

Pecan Bars

1/2 pound butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 cups flour
Preheat oven to 350. Mix in large bowl. Press the dough into a large (presprayed) jelly roll pan. Remember to press the dough up the sides too. Bake fo 15 minutes, until slightly brown. Set aside.

1/2 pound butter
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 cup heavy cream
5 cups chopped pecans

Melt butter and honey in a saucepan then addall sugars and bring to a boil(not stirring.) Let it boil approximately 2 minutes. Remove from heat and then stir. Add cream and pecans. Let sit for 5 minutes. Pour into crust and then bake at 350 for 30 minutes, reducing the heat the last 10 minutes to 250. Make sure it gets real bubbly looking. Let cool for an hour before trying to cut bars. Cut four rows x six rows. Then cut triangular, bite size pieces by slicing diagonally in both directions.
