When Rae was flicking through the recipes in Margaret’s book she saw the caramel pecan slice and her eyes rolled back in her head. 12 years and and I had no idea she loved Pecans so as she is currently immobile and feeling a little down I thought I’d give it a shot.
I had to buy a square slice tin and we’d run out of golden syrup so I had to a second Coles run but the results were worth it. When I first looked at the recipe I saw you had to rub the butter in and grumbled under my breath but then I read the note – use the food processor to make the dough. A ten minute chore turned in to a one minute breeze. The butter and sugar crumbed up in about 30 seconds and after adding the egg another 30 seconds I had the dough.
