Pecan Bars usually find themselves in the top tier of favorite desserts in my world. I am a sucker for caramel, any way you make it or serve it up. It is, without a doubt, my favorite confection. Even better, dare I say, than chocolate. (which I love, to be sure) Pair caramel with nuts and shortbread and I have entered food bliss. When I eat a cookie like this, I am sure there must be a god.
