Pecan Chewies (a.k.a Portable Pecan Pie :))

My hubby loves Pecan Pie, and this simple, yummy recipe allows him to have a "slice of pie" in his lunch bag each work day. These bars are portable and taste just like the Pecan Pie loved by so many. They are especially good served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream drizzled with caramel. However, they taste great at room temperature as well. Bake a batch this weekend and I guarantee your family will thank you. Blessings to you my dear friends! You are dearly loved by your Heavenly Father!

1 John 3:1
"See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!"

Pecan Chewies

2 sticks butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
2 eggs, well beaten
2 cups self-rising flour
1 1/2 cup pecans
2 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Melt butter, add brown and white sugars, and blend well by hand (no mixer). Add beaten eggs, stir well. Add flour and stir until all lumps are gone. Add pecans and vanilla. Pour and spread into a greased and floured 9 x 13 baking dish. Bake approximately 50 minutes being cautious not to over cook. Enjoy!
