Pie Lovers Will Go Nuts for These Pecan Pie Bars

These pecan pie bars are great for the children and adults in any family.

These bars are incredible. I had to put them in another room so I would stop eating them. I used parchment paper as…you have to use this! Makes it soooo much easier! Also it takes much longer to cook then 25 mins. I m not sure if that was a typo in the recipe or not but I cooked mine for almost 60. I used a 9 x 13 and will definately use a larger pan next time! You won t be disappointed.

This recipe was fantastic! I read other’s comments and decided to keep the serving size as directed by the recipe. However I did line the jelly roll pan with foil and made the sides of the foil about 1/2 inch higher than the pan to prevent it from boiling over. I would highly recommed this recipe.
