- An event for Ohio Alleycat Resource, the group we adopted Beso and Luna from.
- A batch that was split between my office and my wife’s. Mine went pretty quickly.
- A batch for my daughter’s teachers. This is one I’m kinda proud of. My wife thought we should do a bit better than the ziplock bag I usually put them in. I had some clear cellophane wrap, so I figured out a really creative way to wrap them. The results are to the right, and, like I said, I’m really pleased with how they came out.
- The final batch, made today, was for my daughter’s piano and dance recital.
The recipe is quite simple, and, I suppose it is a family recipe (or at least I’ve come to treat it as such). All told, I used a fair amount of stuff. Each batch had a pound of pecans–I buy them in bulk from Sam’s club. One-and-a-quarter pounds of butter were used this season. My teeth ache just thinking about all the sugar (white and brown) I went through.
However, I know they are also a very popular treat, and I’m glad I can share a little bit of Louisiana with all my friends in Ohio. And, if someone were to ask me right now, I’m sure I’d be heating up a pot and spreading out some wax paper.
