Expert Tips

  • Special Touch: Add a new shape to your cookie tray. Cut bars diagonally in half to make 32 triangles.
  • Did You Know? Pecans are one of the earliest cultivated crops. In 1846, a Louisiana African-American slave gardener known as Antoine successfully grafted a new pecan tree that was recognized for excellence at the 1876 Philadelphia Exposition.
