Marie Mezewski says she got the recipe for these pecan bars from "one of those gossip sheets." Her family really liked them, so she renamed them Pecan Delights. This is a very sweet, festive cookie that said "holidays" to us.
(Makes 36 bars)
2 cups flour
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
1 cup cold margarine or butter
one 14-ounce can condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
one 6-ounce package almond brickle chips (such as Heath)
1 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine flour and sugar. Cut in margarine until crumbly. Press firmly in the bottom of a 9-by-13-inch baking pan and bake 15 minutes.
In a medium bowl, beat milk, egg and vanilla. Stir in chips and pecans. Spread evenly on crust. Bake 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool and cut into bars. Store in the refrigerator.
