Personal Notes:
Whenever my hubby and I are traveling I miss our beautiful pecan trees and their fantastic nuts. If we stay anywhere for long I have to get pecans mailed our way as I can't always find them in distant ports. These little bars are made with 2 of my favorite ingredients and are good as gold! Yum!
