This is one of those stupid simple recipes that I should hate, but just don’t. Because yum. Serious yum.
- 35 graham crackers
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 cup butter
- 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 1 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 325°.
Place graham crackers on a baking sheet, covering the bottom. You can go a couple ways with this. You can break them into their smallest size before baking them, which gets messy and takes a little time. Or you can leave them large and cut them later, which gets messy. Either way, you’re making a mess. I prefer the pre-break method.
Bring sugar, butter and cream of tartar to a boil in a saucepan. Add the nuts. Pour mixture over the graham crackers.
Bake for 10 minutes. Let them sit for a few minutes after you take them out of the oven, then transfer them to wire racks to cool.
