Old Fashioned Pecan Pie Bars

Old Fashioned Pecan Pie Bars
This image courtesy of recipelion.com

Made with classic baking ingredients, this recipe for Old Fashioned Pecan Pie Bars is similar to one your grandma or great grandma might have used way back when. Based on a traditional southern dessert, the pecan pie, these easy dessert bars have that same great taste but are served in a more easy-to-share form. We love bar dessert recipes like these for potlucks and parties because they're easy for guests to eat, meaning they'll definitely be back for seconds!

Ingredients
  • 2 cups unbleached all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2/3 cup unsalted butter, cut into cubes
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 3/4 cup chopped pecans, divided
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 13x9 baking pan with foil, spray the foil with cooking spray.
  2. Whisk together flour, powdered sugar, salt and baking powder.
  3. Drop the butter into the flour mixture and work it with your fingers until mixture resembles coarse crumbs and begins to stick together. Press evenly into prepared pan and bake for 15 minutes, or until lightly browned. Remove from oven and place on cooling rack.
  4. Whisk eggs in a large bowl until lightly beaten. Add sugar and brown sugar and beat well.
  5. Whisk in the corn syrup gradually and then beat in vanilla and melted butter.
  6. Fold in 1-1/4 cups of the pecans. Pour filling over the crust in the pan, sprinkle with remaining 1/2-cup pecans.
  7. Bake 35-45 minutes, or until filling is set. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack. Lift bars from pan using foil and cut into bars.

I really like this recipe. Pecan pie is one of our favorites, and it's great to have it in an easy-to-make bar version. Even though they probably wouldn't last that long around our house, I'm wondering how well they'd keep in the freezer. These are perfect with a cup of tea or coffee.

I love pecans especially when they are in a pie. I have never tried to make pecan pie bars before. I'm sure they are just as tasty. My family will love it. I think I will make it during the holidays. How many pecan pie bars does this recipe make?
