Mother's Pecan Squares Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2011
Drier than I would have liked, but still tasty. I found that my batter was much more like dough - definitely not spreadable. So I went out on a limb and added a bit of milk to the mix, to make things smoother. This helped a lot and I was able to spread out the batter in the pan like the recipe says. I added a bit of coconut too.

Oh how I wish I'd have loved these. I ended up with a big sticky mess. The outside was hard as a rock and the inside wouldn't set up for anything. I'm a pretty skilled baker, and there's just something not right with the recipe. The flavor was okay, but I won't try again when there are much better recipes on this site...sorry!

Can you spell D-I-S-A-S-T-E-R? I followed the recipe exactly, and was a bit worried when I read the instructions to spread the batter in the pan, when what I had was a very thick cookie dough. I baked for 35 minutes, and was afraid to bake any longer or the topping would burn, but the cookie layer wasn't fully baked. If I made this again I would pre-bake the cookie part for at least 10 minutes...but I have plans to try again.

My husband loves pecan pie and so i am always looking for pecan pie-like desserts. This one is a real winner! I have made it probably 40 times by now, i have even made it for large crowds.

These squares turned out really well! There werent runny in the middle like some pecan pie bars. The edges were crisp, but tasty. I kept them in the oven for 35 minutes, just to make sure the middle was thoroughly baked. They taste the best cooled.
