Pecan Pie Bars

The Best Pecan Pie Bars
If you love pecan pie then these pecan pie bars are definitely the best and a delicious dessert that always gets rave reviews.
This recipe is from my sister, Linda, and she has been making these pecan bars forever. Her famous line regarding these delicious bars is that you have to bake em’ and take em’ because as she states, “if you don’t, you will end up eating all of them yourself, they’re that good”! So Linda makes sure when she bakes these delicious bars that they won’t be around for long because they are wayyyyy too delicious.
I made these sweet and extremely nutty pecan pie bars the other day and just so happen to have them sitting on the counter when Mark, the quality control superintendent for our home builder, came over to discuss the minor repairs that needed to be done on own new home. As we were talking in the kitchen area, I offered Mark one. He gladly said he’d take one “to go” and we continued to discuss the repairs. Mark told us that he was starting his vacation the next day but the workers would be able to do the repairs while he was away. We said goodbye and he left with his baggie in hand.
About an hour later my phone rang and it was Mark. He told me he LOVED the bars and thank me. I told him I have more and if he was still in the area he’s welcome to swing by for some more. Long story short, Mark came by the next morning (the first day of his vacation) for more of these irresistable pecan bars. He said his mom is a real good cook but these were better than his mom’s pecan pie.
