Pecan Dreams

Pecan Dreams
Recipe courtesy Paula Deen's The Lady & Sons: Just Desserts

For added flavor, toast your pecans on an ungreased baking sheet at 350 degrees F for 5 minutes before adding them to the dough.

1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 8-ounce package cream cheese, at room temperature
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, at room temperature
1 cup chopped pecans

Topping:
1 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 cup Heath Bits O' Brickle Toffee Bits

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9 x 2-inch square pan.

Stir together confectioners' sugar and flour in a bowl. Using a pastry cutter or fork, cut cream cheese and butter into flour mixture until crumbly. Press mixture into prepared pan, distributing evenly. Pour nuts over mixture and press into dough. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and cool completely.

For topping, whip cream and granulated sugar together with a hand-held electric mixer until stiff; fold in almond toffee bits. Spread over cake. Cut into squares. Store in refrigerator.

Yield: 25 small squares
