Cinnamon Pecan Cookie Bars
June 08, 2007

I am absolutely shocked by the negative reviews. Obviously, those folks didn't prepare them correctly. They are flaky, crunchy - very similar to shortbread except cinnamon-y. I get RAVES anytime I make these. So, don't let the negative reviews keep you from trying these!! These are not traditional cookies...they are supposed to be flaky, crunchy, NOT leavened ( so for heaven's sake don't add baking soda) Make sure they are pressed out evenly. And don't take them out too soon or they won't be crispy. They are not supposed to be overly sweet either..sort of like Mexican Wedding Cookies. The sweetness comes from he powdered sugar sprinkled on top. So, if you want a super sweet, sugary cookie...this is NOT it! But, if you want to try something different and you love cinnamon and pecans...then give it a try! :-)
