Hello, everyone!! Sorry I haven’t posted anything lately. I took a little extra break from blogging because I stuffed myself so full of food during the holiday season that I haven’t felt like baking anything for a while. 🙂
I loved these bars the minute I took my first bite. The bottom crust is crisp and yummy, and the top layer is moist and soft. I used pecans in the batch I made, simply because I had some on hand. I’m sure walnuts or almonds would taste great in this recipe too.
