Pecan Pie Bars

Pecan Pie Bars start with a buttery shortbread crust and layered with a gooey pecan filling.  A simple and delicious pecan pie baked into a bar.  Perfect to serve a crowd!

The crust is so easy to make, and then all you do is pour a pecan pie like filling on top and bake for 25 minutes. How easy is that?

Classic Chocolate Peanut Clusters {Granny's Recipe}

Chocolate Peanut Clusters were a classic Christmas treat around my house when I was growing up.  It only takes two ingredients make these little jewels. The delicious taste of the sweet and salty together makes these the perfect treat. Chocolate Peanut Clusters are unbelievably easy to make, and when you have unexpected company, they are just what you want to make to wow your guest.

With the addition of chopped pecans, this divinity is crunchy, fluffy, and simply divine.   We have had so many rainy days here in East Texas making it hard for me to make my divinity that I like to put in our Christmas gift boxes.

I decided to have it the Tuesday night before the Thanksgiving weekend when all of my grand children were going to be here together.

The whole night was all about "Apple
