DirectionsPreheat the oven to 350º and line a 9x13-inch pan with foil, leave enough for a 2" overhang on all sides.Start by making your crust, creaming together the butter and brown sugar until fluffy (in a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment).
Add in flour and salt then mix until crumbly.Press into your foil-lined pan and bake for 20 minutes, until golden brown.While your crust bakes, prepare the filling.
Combine the butter, brown sugar, honey and heavy cream in a saucepan. Stirring it over medium heat. Simmer the mixture for 1 minute, then stir in your chopped pecans.Remove your crust from the oven and immediately pour the pecan filling over the hot crust, spread it to cover the entire surface of crust.Return your pan to the oven and bake for another 20 minutes.
After 20 minutes remove the pan from the oven and allow the bars to fully cool "in the pan" on top of a wire cooling rack.Useing the foil overhang, lift out the bars and transfer them to a cutting surface.
