    Simple pleasures's Note:

    Decadent brown sugar and pecans on a shortbread crust -- like mini pecan pies in a melt-in-your-mouth bite! This recipe was my mother's and the squares are a hit wherever I take them. The dessert dish always goes home empty. I usually use pecans, but other nuts can work also.

      I made this for my Christmas platter and have frozen all but a few testers. They taste great and are extremely easy to make. Thanks for posting this simple recipe.

      These were decadent...just like pecan pie! I usually make pies for the holidays, and made these instead, and they were gobbled up! The crust was easy and tasty; I will make these again! Thanks, Simple pleasures, for a variation on a family fave! Made for Spring PAC '09.
