We Like To Bake - Pecan & Caramel Bars

Before the sickly sweetness of deliciousness begins I have to remind everyone to enter my giveaway..... You've gotta be in it to win it!
And who can resist cute stationary? :)

I love to bake with my daughter....
As you can tell by the multitude of sweets and photos of my helper with me.
I am a collector (some may say hoarder) of cookbooks.
I love them all.
But most of all I love to bake.
Cakes, slices, biscuits and breads.
For my birthday I was given the most awesome book from some pretty cool people.

It has been sitting with my other books, waiting to be opened again and to be brought out into the kitchen.

Well finally that day came.
And boy am I glad!


You may notice they are warm, gooey and oozing caramel everywhere.
That's because I wasn't patient enough to wait for it to cool.
I had to try it.

The next day we heated it up again and served with vanilla ice cream.
I wish I had a photo for you but to be honest, it didn't hang around for long.

And just because I think it's not fair to show you such deliciousness without sharing a recipe....
Here you go!

So please make it, enjoy it and maybe even share it.
If you can ;)

And this week I am doing my first link party..... Woohoo!
Go check it out :)

  3. Hi there- found you through the hop and am a new follower. That looks so good! Does it require Karo syrup? That is one of the many things I can't find here. I hope you have time to follow my life in South Africa by

    I hope you have a great week!

  4. Hello you lovely new people! :)
    So nice to see such sweet comments.

    Lovely Light- No Karo syrup in this recipe, just a simple method on the stove with the butter and sugar, nice and quick and easy.

    Loving the blogs ladies, following you all!
