2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1/2 pound sweet butter; softened

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350-degrees and grease a 9×12 inch baking pan.
  • In a large mixing bowl, sift the sugar and flour together. Cut in butter using two knives or a pastry blender, until you have a fine crumb texture. Using a piece of parchment paper, pat the mixture into the prepared baking pan to form the crust. Bake for 20 minutes, then remove from the oven and set aside.
  • In another bowl, beat together the melted butter, honey, cream and brown sugar. Stir in pecans until they are coated. Spread the sticky mixture over the crust.
  • Return to oven and bake for 25 minutes more.
  • Cool completely before cutting into squares.
