Around Christmas I had a great surprise by a friend.. well, not really a friend as we have hardly ever really talked and exchanged views about life, universe and everything, but from the little I know him and his partner they are in the "friends in the making" list. And if it was not for the pandemic etc we would have known each other a lot better am sure..
Anyway! so one day I saw a picture on Dionysios facebook profile. It was a picture of what I thought it was a pecan pie. I commented on it and he said that it was actually pecan bars, something I found really intruiging. Anyway... to make a long story short because the guys were cooking and did not want to eat all that they were making they were sending care packages to their friends. So, they sent one to me including some pieces of that wonderful dessert...
I asked him for the recipe and he gave it to me. And I tried it.. and it did not turn out well.
And that was for three reasons:
First I did not really read the recipe properly.
Second I thought I knew better, and third
I overbaked it... and since it contains a caramel well, you can understand what happened.
So I did it again and this time as I was short on pecan I used pistachios.. and it turned out great. I happened to have some melted chocolate from a video I was doing at the time so I drizzled some on the thing and it just was meant to be.
So, here is the recipe and please try to follow it to the T...
One tip.. cut in small pieces..
