Absolutely Wonderful Pecan Bars

13x9x2-inch pan

These are really rich and sweet but so good. A little goes a long way. A

great Holiday recipe. The recipe was posted on a newsgroup by Ottermum and

she got the recipe from the Great Cookie Cookbook.


1 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats, or old fashioned

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

2 cups dark brown sugar, packed and divided

1 1/2 cups butter, divided (No Sub)

1 1/2 cups pecan halves

1 cup granulated sugar

1/3 cup heavy cream

2 teaspoons vanilla

In a large bowl, combine oats, flour and 1 cups dark brown sugar. Cut 1/2

cup butter into mixture until coarse and crumbly. Press into 13x9-inch

baking pan. Place pecans evenly over crumb mixture. In heavy saucepan,

combine remaining 1 cup brown sugar, granulated sugar and 1 cup butter.

Bring to a rolling boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil 3

minutes; remove from heat. Stir in cream and vanilla until well blended;

pour over pecans. Bake in preheat 350° oven for 35 to 40 minutes. Cool in

pan; cut into bars.
