    I and my family love the combination of pecans and cardamom. I have been making these delicious bars for my family for 15 years.

    Serves: 36 

    • 250g butter, softened
    • 1/2 cup (110g) white sugar
    • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
    • 1 egg, separated
    • 1 tablespoon vanilla essence
    • 2 cups (250g) plain flour
    • 1 tablespoon cardamom
    • 3/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/3 cup chopped pecans
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons butter
    • 1 cup (150g) icing sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
    • 1 tablespoon milk, or as needed

    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:1hour  ›  Ready in:1hour20min 

    1. Preheat the oven to 140 degrees C. Grease a 20x30cm Swiss roll pan.
    2. In a large bowl, cream together 1 cup of butter, white sugar and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in the egg yolk and 1 tablespoon of vanilla. Combine the flour, cardamom and salt; stir into the batter until it forms a soft dough. Spread evenly in the prepared pan. Brush the top with egg white and sprinkle pecans over the top.
    3. Bake for 1 hour in the preheated oven. Prepare the icing while the biscuits bake.
    4. Melt the remaining butter in a saucepan over low heat until it starts to brown. Remove from the heat and stir in icing sugar until smooth. Stir in enough milk to achieve a drizzling consistency. Drizzle icing onto the bars when warm. Cool, then cut into bars.
