    I left my old Betty Crocker cook book at our lake house not realizing my old Pecan Finger receipt was in it. Havent used that receipt in over five years. Wanted to bake some for friends that have never heard of them. Four hours away I was so sad not to have it on hand. I am so excited to find it on line. Thanks!

    Hello, Glenda! The recipe is very Betty Crocker and quite simple. My beaten up page is still sitting in between the covers of the book, although not attached, but the recipe is quite clear. Yay! So here you go – Orange-Lemon Icing: 1 1/2 c confectioners sugar, 2 T butter, melted, 3 T orange juice and 1 Tsp lemon juice. Mix, then spread. So glad I could help! 🙂
