Butterscotch Pecan Squares
1/2 cup margarine, melted
1 15 ounce (432 grams) butter pecan cake mix
1 cup pecan pieces
Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease 9 x 9 inch square pan.
In large microwaveable bowl, melt margarine. Stir in cake mix and nuts. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Spoon into pan.
Bake for 30 minutes.
One of my cousins had posted a link to a recipe for making cookies from cake mix. I tried it and it worked, but since it wasn’t my recipe and was already all over the internet (google “cake mix cookies” if you want to try it) there didn’t seem much point reposting it here. So I experimented a little and came up with this recipe for squares instead. You can make them as drop cookies if you prefer (you’ll have to adjust the cooking time down dramatically) but squares are much less work.
