I am always so amazed at how easy pecan pies are to make! And these bars are even easier!! I think this would be a great recipe for Thanksgiving. As much as I love pecan pie, it can be a little boring to only offer a few different flavors of pie for dessert. These bars have the same awesome flavor but a totally different presentation!
