This is one of those recipes that you find on the back of the box of sugar.
I have a fabulous cook book that I bought 20 years ago called:
Best Recipes From the backs of Boxes, Bottles, Cans and Jars. by Cecil Dyer 1989
Since it is nearly Thanksgiving in the States, I thought it was time for another great recipe with pecans.
I’m the only one who likes pecans in my family so I’m glad these freeze well.
1 cup packed C & H Pure Cane Golden Brown Sugar
1/4 cup shortening
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped pecans
Pre heat oven to 350 degrees
Grease 8 x 8 x 2 inch baking dish. In medium bowl, beat sugar and shortening until fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine flour, baking powder and salt; stir into mixture. Stir in nuts. Spread batter in baking dish. Bake 25 minutes. Cut into 2×1 inch bars. Makes 2 1/2 dozen. Make a fresh pot of coffee – I’ll be right over!
Thanks to Family Fun Magazine for the photo and C & H Pure cane sugar for the recipe.
