Pecan Pie Bars

These are amazing!  If you like pecan pie, you will LOVE these!  In fact, I personally love them way more than pecan pie because it doesn’t have the crust coming up and over the sides.

Our friend Trish gave us this recipe several years ago, and it was an instant hit with our family.  We rarely make pecan pies now because we love these so much!

I was intimidated to make them the first time; however, they are not hard at all.

Warning, there is nothing healthy about these bars, but our family loves having them at the holidays.

Delicious and you get that full pecan pie flavor…that’s all that needs to be said about them!  Let us know what you think below by posting a comment!

Instructions
Crust
  1. Grease a 9x13 pan; heat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Combine sugar, flour and salt in a larger bowl
  3. With a pastry blender or fork, cut in softened butter thoroughly, until mixture resembles very fine bread crumbs. Another option is to use the food processor and pulse a few times to get the texture to that of fine bread crumbs.
  4. Press mixture into the bottom of the greased pan. You can either use plastic wrap to press the crumb mixture firmly into the bottom of the pan, or I have simply wet my fingers with water and done the same thing without any problem.
  5. Bake crust for 17-20 minutes, until lightly browned.
Filling
  1. Combine brown sugar, corn syrup and 1/2 cup butter in a sauce pan. Bring to a boil over medium high heat, stirring regularly. Remove from heat once mixture begins to boil.
  2. Stir 1/4 of the hot mixture into the beaten eggs, add remaining hot mixture and blend well.
  3. Stir in chopped pecans and vanilla. Blend well.
  4. Pour over baked crust.
  5. Bake entire dish for about 35 minutes, or until set (so that the middle doesn't jiggle when you jiggle the pan). Do not burn!
  6. Cool completely in pan on wire rack.
  7. Cut into bars and serve!
