Merry Christmas Eve....

I am sooooo late.

I cooked and cleaned all day, in preparation for tomorrow.

Then I went in and laid down...Just for a little bit.

An hour later, I realized that I hadn't written the blog entry yet.  Oops!!!

Tessie told me to just give you this recipe and let it go at that....I suspect that she just wanted to pose with the cookies.  Whilst eating most of them.

This is another very easy recipe...Very tasty.

So here you go!

Graham Cracker Nut Bars.

1 cup butter
3/4 c sugar
Graham Crackers
1 c. chopped pecans

Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and butter it well.  Break crackers apart and line them up side by side on the sheet.

Combine butter and sugar in a sauce pan.  Boil over low hear for three minutes, until butter melts and sugar dissolves.  Stir constantly.

Spoon over graham crackers and spread evenly.  Sprinkle pecan pieces over the top.  Bake at 350 for 8 minutes.

Cool some and then put the pan in the refrigerator to cool completely. Peel the foil from the back and break into pieces. 

EAT!

The last notation was Tessie's.

I did them this year with chocolate flavored graham crackers and walnuts instead of pecans.  We are on the second batch...The seem to disappear quickly.  Of course Tessie makes sure that none go to waste.

Anyway, tomorrow's the big day.

See you then. Merry Christmas Eve!

Sounds delicious, Casey. Tessie looks cute in her hat and holding that huge piece of cookie. I would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year. Thank you for all the entertainment with the terrible three. It was fun!
