Ingredients

1/2 lb. butter (not oleo)

• 1 cup crushed or ground pecans, divided

Directions

1. Line a 13"×9"×2" pan or cookie sheet with waxed paper. Sprinkle bottom of pan with 1/3 cup coarsely ground pecans (mixture won't cover all of a cookie sheet, so sprinkle pecans over about 2/3 of sheet).
