Saturday was spent doing a marathon of Christmas cookie baking with my sister. We made chocolate peanut butter balls, pecan tassies, and these delicious caramel nut grahams. They are so easy and so addicting. And they keep well when made in advance, because who really has time to make fresh Christmas cookies the day before?!
You will only need these 4 simple ingredients:
1 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
pecans, coarsely chopped (we used about 8oz)
First, break graham crackers into 4 rectangles. Line them up in the bottom of a jelly roll pan, touching each other.
Melt the butter and sugar together in a saucepan and let simmer for a couple minutes. Pour mixture over the graham cracker layer in the jelly roll pan. Spread evenly. Put pan into a 350 degree oven and bake for 8 - 10 minutes, until they have bubbled throughout for about 3 minutes. Immediately sprinkle with coarsely chopped pecans. Let cool for about 4 - 7 minutes and remove from jelly roll pan with spatula, transfer to waxed paper. Let cool completely and store in an airtight container.
