TWiB #27 – Pecan Pie Bars

What’s more American than pecan pie? I made these for 4th of July, and they are much more BBQ-friendly than traditional pecan pie. They were a HUGE hit.

Modifications
The original called for an odd-shaped pan and nowhere near enough pecans.  I made enough changes that I decided to post my version of the recipe here:

2 cups all-purpose flour
4 1/2 tbsp brown sugar
3/4 cup butter

3 eggs
3/4 cups brown sugar
3/4 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup pecan halves (or more to taste)
3/4 cup light corn syrup
4 tbsp butter
1 1/2 tsp vanilla

Follow the recipe as directed except use a 9″x13″ pan and cut into 36 bars.

Rating
Strong 4.5 stars out of 5.  The crust could use a slight improvement.
