To go along with this delicious gift, I chose one more delicious treat, Pecan Squares from my friend Rosie. You must all know her by now. If not, go say hi. Fantastic blog, she posts nearly every day, always something great cooking. These are phenomenally delicious!!
Begin by making the base. Work together your flour, powdered sugar and chilled, sliced butter till crumbly. Using this trick I learned from Rosie, spread the dough evenly into a 9 X 13 pan. I use this trick all the time now, rather than petting, I mean patting, where is my filthy mind, things together into a pan, it works so wonderfully, and such an even bottom crust it makes. Now bake this crust for 15 min at 350..
For the filling, gather these. Beat the egg a little in the bowl, and add the condensed milk and vanilla. Then mix in the pecans and toffee bits. Pour this deliciousness over the prepared crust. Spread out evenly. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes. , OR UNTIL GOLDEN, I think I let mine go a few too long. Let cool and then chill the suckers. They are beyond good. They are sinful. Quite addictive. I will be adding these to my Christmas tray next year. I love them, wonderful, wonderful taste!! Another keeper, Rosie.
Just a side note, I have been getting some emails about where my recipes are, so if you are reading me via a reader, you have to visit my blog to get the recipe, they are at the bottom of my posts on the key ingredient cards.
