Grandma Helen's Praline Wafers

After baking

Grandma Helen's Praline Wafers

10-12 whole graham crackers
1 cup light brown sugar
1 cup unsalted butter
1/4 cup pecan pieces

Preheat oven to 325.  Line a rimmed 11x15 cookie sheet with foil, and cover in a single layer of graham crackers.  In a saucepan over medium heat, combine sugar and butter, stirring to combine.  Bring to a boil and cook for 3 minutes, until caramelized.  Remove from heat and stir in pecan pieces.  Pour mixture over graham crackers and bake for seven minutes. Let cool and break into squares.  Let cool, and break into squares.  Store in an airtight container.  Best eaten within 1-2 days.  You can add 1 cup coconut, drizzle with  chocolate, or use almonds in place of pecans.

My Note:
When I saw the note about drizzling with chocolate, I though of sprinkling with chocolate chips.  These ended up tasting a lot like Heath bars.   Yum!

Almost as sweet as she is!
