Pecan Pie Bars

In honor of National Pecan Pie Day, we thought we would share a delectable pecan pie bar recipe by Marion!


Pecan Pie Bars are very easy to make. For this recipe, the size of the pan is very important! The inside dimensions of the pan need to be 10" x 15"
Shortbread Crust:
    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 10" x 15" Jellyroll Pan and line with parchment paper making sure to have parchment hanging over all sides of the pan.
    2. In the bowl of your Food Processor combine 3 cups all-purpose flour, 1/2 cup sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. With the Food Processor running, feed 1 cup cold, diced butter through the tube until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
    3. Press the mixture evenly into the prepared pan, and bake in the pre-heated oven for 20 minutes.
Pecan Pie Filling:
    1. In a mixing bowl add 4 eggs, 1 1/2 cups light corn syrup, 1 1/2 cups sugar, 3 tablespoons melted butter, 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract, and 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt.
    2. Mix using a stand or hand mixer until smooth, then fold in 2 1/2 cups chopped pecans.
    3. Spread the filling evenly over the baked shortbread crust.
    4. Bake for 30-40 minutes in preheated oven. When done, the filling will be set nicely - no jiggles. 
    5. Cool completely. Once cooled, chill in the fridge for 30 minutes for easier slicing. Enjoy!
