CARAMEL PECAN BARS

CARAMEL PECAN BARS

Happy New Year from Moore Or Less Cooking! This is the first recipe on my blog for 2014! I am happy to post a very delicious and easy cookie bar to start the New Year off with sweet luck! Thinking that we were eating lots of delicious lucky foods for New Years Day, I thought that this Caramel Pecan Bar would be perfect, it tastes like a pecan pie in a bar. As soon as friends took their first bite, they asked if this was posted on my blog! So here you go! My new favorite Caramel Pecan bar! I wish you all a Happy Healthy Prosperous New Year 2014!
