Margaret Fulton’s Caramel Pecan Slice


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.
