Pecan Pie Bars




There’s no more southern of a dessert than Pecan Pie, but I wanted to make something I could pack easily in lunches. The solution? Pecan Pie Bars. They were quick and easy and almost as good as the real thing.

Pecan Pie Bars

Crust:

Combine the following in a bowl until well mixed and then spread on the bottom of a 9/13 baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.



Filling:

Cream together:

  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar


Add:

  • 2 cups of pecans
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 stick of butter (melted)

When well mixed, pour over the baked crust and put back in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

  1. Why is the crust so dry? It does not form a dough.
