Can you believe Christmas is a little over a week away?! Where has this year gone? My answer, I don’t know! So, if you aren’t spreading Christmas and holiday cheer yet, I am going to help you with these festive bars. I actually made these over Thanksgiving instead of Pecan pie, and they were such a great success that I am going to remake them for Christmas. My family always has a plate of cookies for dessert with (optional) ice cream, in addition to a pie or cake! (Wow we sound like fat kids!) Follow the recipe below to start spreading your festive cheer!
Pecan Pie Bars:
1 cup butter, softened
2 cups flour
1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup corn syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 Tablespoons butter, melted
2 1/2 cups pecans
Preheat oven to 350
For Crust, mix together butter, flour, and confectioner’s sugar
Press into the bottom of a greased 9×13 inch baking pan
Bake for approximately 15 minutes, or until lightly golden
For Pie: Beat the eggs, add the sugar, mix well
Add the corn syrup, salt, and vanilla
Mix in the melted butter
Mix in the pecans
Pour into crust
Bake for 30 minutes
Let cool and cut the bars to the desired size!
