It's that time of year! I love the Fall and also the smell of these Pecan Pie bars cooking in the oven. Heaven!

These are kind of like pecan pie bites.  And they were really yummy! A good way to have an easy-to-eat dessert at your next party.

How To Make pecan pie bars

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 10x15 inch jelly roll pan with parchment paper and leave a little over hang to make it easier to lift bars out. Lightly spray with Pam.
  • 2
    In a large bowl, stir together the flour, ½ cup sugar, and salt. Cut in the 1 cup of butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle the mixture evenly over the prepared pan, and press in firmly.
  • 3
    Bake for 20 minutes in a preheated oven.
  • 4
    While the crust is baking, prepare the filling. In a large bowl mix together the eggs, corn syrup, 1 ½ cups sugar, 3 tablespoons butter, and vanilla until smooth. Stir in the chopped pecans. Spread the filling evenly over the crust as soon as it comes out of the oven.
  • 5
    Bake for 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until set. Allow to cool completely on a wire rack before slicing into bars. I also loosen the edges of the whole thing with a knife. They can be a little sticky trying to get them out of the pan!
