Easy Pecan Pie Bars

Monday, November 26, 2018
If you love Pecan Pie, these easy replica of that pie baked simply into squares will be your new favorite cookie bar!

These are so simple to make with simple pantry ingredients.

They are buttery rich and taste just like your favorite pecan gooey delicious pie.

I love the ease of this recipe making this classic pie into bars.

We make many bar cookies, they sure bake up quick with all the same great taste and half the fuss it takes.

One of my other favorite our Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake Squares you may remember that recipe or my Pumpkin Zucchini Bars?

I also absolutely love how easy these pie bars are to serve guests.

You can make a whole variety of bars and everyone can choose what they like and they even freeze well to just take out when needed.

What could be easier?

Scroll down to this easily printable recipe and let's bake a batch together!

The Easy Way Out



Well, maybe you really think this is no comparison to the thick mile-high rich sweet gooey pecan pie.


Of course, it's not going to be exactly the same as that thick piece of the buttery rich pie, but these sure do the trick when you're one not to love baking pies!


A great alternative especially during a busy holiday season like Thanksgiving.


The bars are perfect for fall baking and a great addition to a holiday Christmas tray indeed!


I have to say that Pecan Pie is really a fantastic pie and one of my favorites, so these fill that craving until I have a slice!


These little squares are even great with some ice cream served as a dessert!

Cookie Bars and Squares



These one-pan pie bars are truly a favorite.


I usually make a pan for friends and family that love the actual pie and also they love my pecan chocolate pie bars, those are yummy as well!


I love making a variety of bars like my chocolate chip banana bars with coconut they're so delicious also!


So as you can see I love the ease of baking bars all in one pan and ready for company and entertaining anytime because you will always find a few of each in the freezer for variety!

Tips:


  • Chop the pecans in a nut chopper.
  • Don't over bake them.
  • The pecan bars seem a little uncooked but this is normal. They will set up as they cool.
  • Let the bars cool completely before cutting, I like to refrigerate overnight.
  • Use a plastic knife to cut the bars, it won't stick as easy
  • I always use parchment paper to line the pan, cool then cut them.
  • You can make these ahead of time and freeze them, thaw and serve.

  5. Cut in 2/3 cup butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. 
  6. Press this mixture evenly into the prepared pan, and press in firmly.
