an peace offering...

A Holiday treat...
I offer you for my non-bloggin' self.
Please forgive me for my lameness the past six months or so.

Now, with the majority of our casa
updating complete, I'm back in my kitchen.

And just in time for the holiday's no less.

I made these the other day to give away...
that was after I "tested" it. mmm... ;)

*Salted Caramel Pecan Bars*

1 cup chopped pecans
12 whole graham crackers
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3/4 cup butter
2 Tablespoon whipping cream
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp kosher salt

~ Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake pecans in a single
layer in a shallow pan 10 to 12 minutes or until toasted
and fragrant, stirring halfway through.
~ Line a 15- x 10-inch jelly-roll pan with foil;
lightly grease.
~ Arrange graham crackers in a single layer
in prepared pan, slightly overlapping edges.
~ Combine sugar, butter, and cream in a medium-size
heavy saucepan; bring to a boil over medium heat,
stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, and stir in
vanilla and pecans. Pour butter mixture over crackers,
spreading to coat.
~ Bake for 10 to 11 minutes or until lightly browned and bubbly.
~ Immediately sprinkle with salt, and slide foil from pan onto
a wire rack. Cool completely (about 30 minutes). Break into bars.


Peace, Love, Good Food and Warmth...
