Best Ever Pecan Pie Bars are so good people offer to pay me for them. A fabulous recipe with a caramelized pecan pie set atop a shortbread crust is the absolute perfect nut bar. My family requests more of this dessert than any other every year.
Resharing this in memory of my mom… It’s been 6 years and we miss her everyday…
Well, it is officially November and around here that means it’s baking season!
Every Christmas I ask our families what they would like to see in the homemade gifts that we give each year. My family always says the same thing. “Lots and lots of your pecan bars.”
A vanilla shortbread crust is the base for this amazing treat. 2 pounds of pecans and brown sugar guarantee that this will be a very nutty sweet treat.
Interestingly, this is an adapted version of the recipe that started it all. In the fall of 2006, after dating for nearly 10 years, Chad and I were busy preparing for our Christmas wedding.
Needless to say, holiday baking wasn’t in the plans, but my mom insisted I had to make these pecan squares that she had gotten from a friend at work.
