Becky has spent her entire career cooking and baking, which are also her favorite hobbies outside of work. For her, time spent in the kitchen not only relieves stress, but is lots of fun as well.

Combine 1/3 cup flour and 3 tablespoons sugar in small bowl; cut in 2 tablespoons butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in pecans. Set aside.
