German Desserts: Pecan Bars

This yummy pecan bar recipe comes from my German cousin, Ingrid. Once she immigrated to Canada, she found this easy method to try to recreate one of her favorite treats, Nussecken. Is it the same? Absolutely not. Is it delicious. Absolutely! 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!

My Mutti also experimented with Nussecken. They were cut into triangles and then 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.

Ingrid's Easy Pecan Bar Recipe

Hints

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.

Oma says,

Using graham wafers for this is definitely NOT German, but I'm sure you'll love this quick and easy cookie recipe as well.

I know I do.

Oma Gerhild Fulson

This Oma KNOWS you CAN do it.

How do I know?

Well, if I can do it, anyone can.

I've even figured out how I can help you.

I've teamed up with my own business coach, Renae Christine (yes, do google her!), to bring you this free masterclass. After you watch it, ask me any questions and I'll gladly answer them.

Don't hesitate. I'm not sure how long Renae will keep this free masterclass available.

Thinking of starting a handmade business. I've got a FREE workshop from my coach right here.

PS:  Yes, Renae really is as amazing as all the reviews say.

PPS: Yes, the course is for handmade items, but I've used it successfully for my cookbooks. I know others are using her methods for services, direct sales, and even a local ice cream bar & grill that's constantly selling out. You've nothing to lose by taking a look ... and a whole bunch to gain.
