Pecan Snickerdoodle Bars

I am hoping to get back on track and start posting more recipes.  I have been really busy trying to get Christmas shopping, cook book writing, and decorating done.  I am on vacation this week so I am hoping to get my Christmas goodies done.

These Pecan Snickerdoodle bars are so addicting.  You start eating them and can not quit.  I made them with some of the pecans I bought while driving through Georgia last month.  These are the best pecans I have ever tasted.  It really does make a difference in buying them at the Pecan farm vs buying them in the store.

Pecan Snickerdoodle Bars

1/2 Cup butter
1 Cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon Butter Pecan Lorann flavor fountain
1 1/2 Cup flour
1/2 teaspoon soda
2 Tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 Cup chopped pecans

In a large mixer bowl beat butter and sugar until fluffy.  Add egg and vanilla and continue to beat until combined.  Add flour and baking soda and combine.

Spread batter into a 8 X 11 1/2 inch pan ( I used a half of a sheet cake pan 13 X 9.625 so mine are a little thin) 

Sprinkle chopped pecans over dough and then gently press them into the dough

Combine 2 T sugar with cinnamon and sprinkle over dough

Bake for 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees or until wooden pick inserted comes out clean
