Sticky Pecan Squares

Finally it's the weekend! Two whole days to fill with whatever you like - and in my case, baking! I've been waiting all week long to try this recipe, which I got from http://www.monkeydish.com/
Me and my husband both love nuts, especially pecans and macadamias, and this recipe makes the absolute best of them!


Ingredients:

Crust:
6 oz. unsalted butter, cut up
2 cups all-purpose flour
1⁄2 cup light brown sugar
1⁄2 tsp. salt

Topping:
8 oz. pecan halves (2 cups)
4 oz. unsalted butter
1 cup light brown sugar
1⁄3 cup golden syrup / dark corn syrup
2 tbsp. heavy cream

Directions:

1. For crust: Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit / 175 degrees celcius. In food processor, combine all ingredients. Process until mixture just holds together.

2. Crumble mixture into 13in by 9in. baking pan; press evenly into bottom of pan. Bake about 20 min., until golden.

3. Meanwhile prepare topping: Coarsely chop pecans. In heavy saucepan, melt butter; stir in brown sugar, syrup, and cream. Simmer mixture 1 minute; stir in chopped pecans and remaining pecan halves.

4. Pour pecan mixture over hot crust and spread evenly. Bake 20 minutes longer. Cool and cut into squares.
