Southern Praline Bars

Our son has been in South Carolina serving a mission for our church for two years. He comes home Thursday! In honor of him, I am posting a southern recipe. Southern Praline Bars, they taste like pecan pie in a graham cracker crust, so easy and delicious!

Southern Praline Bars

Whole graham crackers, enough to make a layer in a sheet pan
1½ cups butter
1½ cups brown sugar
2 cups chopped pecans
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350°. Line a sheet pan with foil, leaving overhang on each end. Place graham crackers in a layer completely covering bottom of pan. You will have to cut some crackers to make them fit, a fun little puzzle. In a medium saucepan, melt butter and whisk in brown sugar. Bring mixture to rolling boil, stir in pecans and boil for 2 minutes; stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla (careful, it will bubble up when you stir in the vanilla). Pour mixture over the graham crackers, working quickly but gently to spread mixture evenly. Bake for 10 minutes. Entire surface will be bubbly. Remove from oven and cool 15 minutes. Using foil overhang, remove bars from pan to large cutting board. Gently peel foil down from sides of bars, cut into squares and cool completely. You can also drizzle them with melted chocolate!
