Pecan Pie Bars


These Pecan Pie Bars are a rendering of the the beloved, and delightfully gratuitous, southern pie. The chewy little take on the classic fits lovingly in the palm of your hand and enjoyed perfectly in one, two, or three bites (while reaching for the next)! Believe me, it was difficult to not just eat the batch. Include these in this holiday's eating festivities for a delicious, and quite sharable, morsel of pecan pie. Enjoy!!

Servings: 16 bars
Prep Time: ~35min

8 Graham Crackers, crushed
2 Tbsp Sugar, granulated
1/2 Tsp Cinnamon, ground
1/2 Cup Butter, unsalted, melted
All Purpose Flour, as needed

6 Tbsp Butter, unsalted
3/4 Cup Light Brown Sugar, packed
2/3 Cup Corn Syrup, light
2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
1 Tsp Cinnamon, ground
2/3 Cup Pecans, chopped
3 Eggs, Whole, room temperature
1/4 Tsp Salt

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Crust - Crush the graham crackers and combine with the sugar and cinnamon. Pour in the melted butter and work until dampened. Use a spoonful of flour, as needed, if the crust is too wet. Press into the bottom of a non-greased 9 x 9 baking pan. Bake for 10 minutes. Set aside to cool

Reduce oven to 350 degrees.

Filling - In a medium saucepan, melt the butter with the brown sugar, corn syrup, vanilla, and cinnamon until smooth. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 10 minutes. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs and quickly stir into the sugar mixture. Fold in the chopped pecans and pour into the prepared crust. Bake at 350 degrees for  40 minutes, or until set. Allow to cool before slicing.
