Pecan Pie Bars
My husband (Blake) has a Thanksgiving lunch at work every year. After three years, he finally asked me to make something for it! I headed to Pinterest and started looking up recipes.
Blake picked out these Pecan Pie Bars and I got to baking. I was impressed with how easy this recipe was; after 20 minutes I had these bars in the oven.
If you need a quick holiday dessert, these Pecan Pie Bars are awesome!
Recipe Ingredients for Crust
- 2 Sticks unsalted butter, softened
- 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 and 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
Recipe Ingredients for Topping
- 1 Stick unsalted butter
- 1 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1/3 cup honey
- 2 Tablespoons heavy cream
- 2 cups chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9×13 inch pan with parchment paper, leaving an overhang on all sides.
For the crust, cream together the butter and brown sugar until fluffy in a stand mixer with the paddle attachment. Add in the flour and salt and mix until crumbly.
Press the crust into the lined pan and bake for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
While the crust bakes, prepare the filling. Combine the butter, brown sugar, honey, and heavy cream in a saucepan and stir over medium heat. Simmer the mixture for 1 minute and stir in the chopped pecans. Remove the crust from the oven and immediately pour the pecan filling over the crust, making sure to cover the entire surface. Return the pan to the oven and bake for 20 minutes.
Remove the pan from the oven and allow the bars to fully cool in the pan. Use the overhang to lift out the Pecan Pie Bars. Slice into bars and serve.
