A few weeks ago I had a group of ladies over for lunch to celebrate the start of school. It was pot luck style and my girl’s did not disappoint.
My friend Heather brought these insanely delicious Pecan Pie Bars for dessert, and e.v.e.r.y.o.n.e. loved them.
We were pulling the- “What’s that over there?” then swipe the last bar when they’re not looking maneuver.
I had to get the recipe. HAD TO. I mean, for the blog… of course.
It came as no surprise that the recipe calls for a full pound of butter.
Worth every calorie.
And PLEASE don’t email me saying I’m trying to cause cancer or diabetes. Cause seriously people, as much as I’d love to sit down with a fork and a full pan of these bars – I’m all about good things in moderation.
The crust is a delicate buttery layer that reminds me of a shortbread cookie. It’s probably my favorite part.
The topping is filled with caramel lathered pecans, oh so gooey and sweet. It’s probably my favorite part.
These make a full 9″ x 13″ pan, and are perfect for bringing to any holiday party or gathering. They’ll be gone quick, so make sure you keep some at home for yourself.
