Pecan Pie Bars

There wasn’t a Thanksgiving or Christmas I can remember without Pecan Pie Bars.

It was my Dad’s favorite, and I must have inherited that gene.

These bars are delicious and super easy to make. I hope you give them a try this holiday season.

They don’t last long in my house!


If you’ve made Pecan Pie before, the ingredients should look familiar. I’m not going to miss rolling out a pie crust, though!


How easy is this? Pat the “crust” down in your pan. Your kids can help with this pecan pie bars recipe!


The main ingredients in this filling…brown sugar and corn syrup. Enough said.
