I continue to go on working through all of the loose recipes that keep falling from within the pages of actual cookbooks.
This time I made Pecan Chewies (recipe written on the back of a spent calendar page.)
I was hoping this would be the recipe for what my Maw-maw called Pralines. She used to make these incredible delicious chewy bars full of pecans, very similar to this recipe but not quite.
Don't get me wrong, these are also incredibly delicious chewy bars full of pecans and worth making. They have the texture of great brownies and taste a bit like pecan pie. Again, definitely worth making.
As a bonus, you just throw everything into one bowl and mix. Quick, easy, little mess, perfect.
This would be a yummy snack for hungry kiddos coming in from school.
Or...these would be delicious with some homemade vanilla ice cream on top.
Meanwhile, my search for Maw-maw's praline bars is ongoing...
1 c. Brown Sugar
1/4 tsp. Baking Soda
1/4 tsp. Salt
2 Tbs. Wine (I used white but either is fine)
1 c. Pecans, chopped
Preheat oven to 350F.
Spray an 8x8 pan with cooking spray.
Mix everything together and pour into prepared pan.
Bake for 20 - 23 minutes or until the middle is no longer jiggly.
Let cool for about 10 minutes before cutting slices.
This is part of FPT.
