Billy loves pecan pie.
I love almost anything made with refrigerated crescent roll dough.
I bought a multipack of crescent roll dough at Sam's the other day. I always get excited when they have them during the holidays (way cheaper than they can be found elsewhere). I save up recipes all year. :)
When I came across a recipe for pecan pie bars with a crescent roll crust earlier this week, I knew it was a must-try. And I already had all the ingredients...bonus! :)
I made them tonight. The recipe says to cool an hour before cutting. Little glitch there...they were gone before the hour was up. :) I have to say, they were amazing warm. So I recommend ignoring that part of the recipe.
Billy said the only thing that would make them better is a big scoop of vanilla ice cream. We'll have to try that next time. :) I'm not sure we could handle them being any better, though, as quickly as people inhaled them!
Have you tried a new recipe yet this holiday season? Share it with us in the comments, please!
