    Not wanting to spend hours in the kitchen, I was looking for something easy and quick. This recipe fit the bill on both counts. These little bars mix up in no time, with only a mixing bowl and a saucepan to clean up. The flavor is good, too. For only having a handful of ingredients, they are very rich. The middle layer of pecans and the caramel-ish stuff is almost like toffee in taste and texture. I made these last night exactly as stated and I found my crust was crumbly. Did anyone else have that problem? I wondered if I should use less flour or more butter next time? Suggestions?
