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

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.
