Pecan Pie Bars

Pecan pie is my favorite! I like it even better than pumpkin pie. Bars are perfect as they're easier to eat, and you can cut smaller portions than a full slice. These are easy and so completely delicious!

  • 3 sticks butter
  • 1 2/3 c. brown sugar
  • 2 2/3 c. flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/3 c. honey
  • 2 tbsp. heavy cream
  • 2 1/2 c. pecans
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Whipped cream (optional)

  3. Beat 2 sticks of butter and 2/3 c. brown sugar together for 2 minutes
  4. Add together 2 2/3 c. flour, 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. cinnamon

  6. Spread into pan and press down with hands until flattened evenly
  7. Bake for 20 minutes
  8. Put pecans in a large Ziploc bag and hit with a hammer until chopped, and set aside
  9. Meanwhile, melt the other stick of butter in a small sauce pan over medium low
  10. Add 1 c. brown sugar, the honey, and the cream
