Pecan Tassies – Quick & Easy baking. These little two-bite tassies are so flavoursome. A rich pastry crust and a sweet and nutty filling, a perfect treat.
These sensational flapjacks really do taste great. Be careful not to eat too many. I recently received a promotional email from Costco which included something called Salted Caramel Sensations which looked very good indeed.

I recently made some lovely pecan squares that tasted so good. So I wanted to try a little improvement, with the addition of some chocolate. Hence these Millionaire’s Pecan Squares, or Bars.
