3: Pecan Pie Bars

Posted this amazin recipe once before so i'm not gonna write a whole lot about it this time. Plus I'm to tired to write anything at all, just wanted to get it up.

What I will say though is that DON'T DO OTHER THINGS AS YOU'RE MAKING THE CARAMEL! I did this because i hade so much to do so I had to do several things at the same time. I thought I could melt make the caramel on low heat and that it would be okey but no. It wasn't terrible burt but on the edges you could taste just a bit of the burnt taste. But people still liked them so I guess I can't be to hard on my self.

Recipe from: The Cherry On Top

What You Need

For crust:
2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon salt

For topping:
1 stick (½ cup) unsalted butter
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/3 cup honey
2 tablespoons heavy cream
2 cups chopped pecans

What You Need to Do

Preheat the oven to 350ºF and line a 9×13-inch pan with foil, leaving enough for a 2-inch overhang on all sides.

First make the crust by creaming together the butter and brown sugar until fluffy in a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Add in the flour and salt and mix until crumbly.

Press the crust into the foil-lined pan and bake for 18 minutes until golden brown.

While the crust bakes, prepare the filling by combining the butter, brown sugar, honey and heavy cream in a saucepan and stirring it over medium heat. Simmer the mixture for 1 minute, then stir in the chopped pecans.

Remove the crust from the oven and immediately pour the pecan filling over the hot crust spreading it to cover the entire surface.

Return the pan to the oven and bake an additional 18 minutes (I will reduce the time to 16 minutes for a softer caramel. But this i just a matter of taste so if you want it harder keep the 18 minutes or even up to 20 minutes).

Remove the pan and allow the bars to fully cool in the pan.

Use the foil overhang to lift out the bars and transfer them to a cutting board. Peel off the foil, slice into bars and serve.
