Pain in the Ass Bars aka Yum Yummies

 Yesterday, I made my kids their favorite cookies which are actually bars.  I made 6X the recipe.  I don't even know that their is a word for that....hexdruple? These are a major pain in the ass though my children call them Yum Yummies.

 They are so good that I had a friend whose husband would stand hunched over their sink shoveling them in each Xmas when he got them on their cookie platter. The house rule was that he got all of the yum yummies.

 They have a shortbread crust, a pecan pie-like filling and buttercream frosting.

I'm sitting here waiting for The Blog Tech to show up and help me cut them.  Cutting them into pieces is the worst part.  Hopefully the effort will be worth it and we will turn a bunch of wedding guests into yum yummy fans.
