Ingrid's Pecan Bar Recipe

German Desserts: Pecan Bars
Yum

This yummy pecan bar recipe comes from one of my German friends. It's one of those quick and easy cookie recipes that the kids can help with by lining the cookie sheet with the graham crackers. This is such a tasty addition to a cookie platter and when chocolate icing is drizzled over, this almost tastes like a scrumptious, chewy, gooey chocolate bar!

The ones my Mutti made were cut into triangles. We would then dip two of the corners into the melted chocolate chips. Using graham crackers makes this easy. And fun! Certainly there's less to go wrong. Just make sure to keep the kids away from the butter/sugar mixture. It's hot and sticky. But the kids can have fun drizzling the chocolate over the finished cookies.


Easy Pecan Bar Recipe

Ingredients:

  • Graham crackers (about 20 - 24)
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup pecans (chopped)

Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 350° F.
  • Line cookie sheet with crackers.
  • Carefully bring butter and sugar to boil. Gently simmer for 2 minutes.
  • Add pecans and spread over crackers.
  • Bake - 10 minutes.
  • Cut while warm.
Hints

:

  • Melt about 1 cup chocolate chips and drizzle over after baking.


Hints for Pecannuss-Schnitten

I've always used pecans for these. Walnuts can be substituted for the pecans, but pecans are usually sweeter. However, if cost is a factor, then either a mixture of walnuts and pecans, or just walnuts would work.

Not too sure of how German it is, but I'm sure you'll love this quick and easy cookie recipe! It's one of those simple cookie recipes you'll make over and over.

I know I do. It reminds me of similar tasting squares recipes my Mutti used to make. Only she had to made a crust for the bottom.
