How To Make Pecan Pie Bars
These pecan pie bars don’t require any fancy equipment — just a good old fashioned bowl and baking dish. Make the crust, mix up the filling, and get to baking!
Prepare the oven and pan: Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 9×13 inch baking pan with parchment paper.
Make the shortbread crust: In a medium bowl, mix all the crust ingredients together using a fork until coarse crumbs form.
Bake the crust: Transfer the crust mixture to the prepared baking pan. Press it into a smooth and compacted layer using your fingers. Bake the crust in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes until it is lightly golden.
Mix the filling: In a small bowl, lightly beat the eggs with a fork. In a separate large bowl, combine the brown sugar, flour and salt. Whisk the rest of the ingredients and the eggs into the dry ingredients, then fold in the chopped pecans.
Bake the bars: Pour the pecan topping over the hot shortbread crust. Bake for about 25-35 minutes, or until the edges have set and the center is mostly set with a slight jiggle. The filling will continue to set as it cools.
Serve the bars: Rest the bars at room temperature until completely cooled before serving. Enjoy!
