Pure Pecan Heaven

Over the past few months, I have become quite the Pinterest addict.  I have found recipes galore, fun household tips, clothing ideas, inspirational quotes, and the list goes on and on!

I wrote a post a few months ago about some of the pins I had tried at home. Today, I want to share a recipe that I tried a few weeks ago for a large group that everyone loved. (I have been baking since I was a teenager, and my mom said it was the best thing I have ever made.  And she is a big fan of my baking.)  ;-)

I will warn you that this is not, by any means, a calorie conscious recipe! Here is what you will need:

For crust:

2 sticks unsalted butter, softened

2/3 cup packed brown sugar

2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour

½ teaspoon salt

For topping:

1 stick (½ cup) unsalted butter

1 cup packed light brown sugar

1/3 cup honey

2 tablespoons heavy cream

2 cups chopped pecans

 

The crust, fresh out of the oven. To be honest, I think that alone may be heavenly!

The amazing pecan topping, ready to be poured over the crust. I can attest to the fact that this part is yummy alone! ;-)

In the oven, almost done!! :-) (Yes, there are two of them there.  I told you it was a big crowd!)

OK, I have to admit, I forgot to take a picture of the finished product–but it looked almost as good as it tasted! For the full recipe and more pics, head over to Just a Taste, an awesome food blog! While you are there, be sure to check out some more of Kelly Senyei’s awesome recipes.

 Do you have a favorite website or blog for recipes? Have you tried Pinterest yet? Have you found any irresistible tips? Or do you have any of your own you would like to share? I’d love to know!
