Great Fall Recipes from Kay’s Kitchen



Taken from a Post Selects Cereal Box, these cookie bars are not only delicious but would double for a breakfast on the go, if you don’t have time to grab something.  The main ingredient is my favorite cereal in the whole world:  Post Selects with Pecans (all the other flavors are awesome too). 

Crunchy Pecan Shortbread Bars

1 ¼ cups flour

¼ cup granulated sugar

½ c. (1 stick) butter or margarine

1 egg, slightly beaten

1/3 c. maple-flavored syrup

¼ cup firmly packed brown sugar

1 Tbsp. butter or margarine, melted

1 tsp. vanilla

1 ½ cups Post Selects Pecan Crunch

 Preheat oven: 375*, grease 9” square pan.  Mix flour and granulated sugar in medium bowl.  Cut in ½ cup butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  Press crumb mixture firmly into bottom of greased 9” square baking pan.  Bake at 375* for 20 minutes or until lightly browned. 

Mix egg, brown sugar, 1 Tbsp. melted butter, and vanilla until well blended.  Stir in cereal until well coated.  Spread evenly over warm crust.

Bake an additional 20 to 25 minutes or until topping is firm around edges and slightly soft in center.  Cool completely on wire rack.  Cut into bars.  Makes 2 dozen.
