Get ready to indulge in some mouthwatering pecan pie bars that are irresistibly ooey-gooey, bursting with flavor, and incredibly easy to whip up. If you’re in the mood for a classic pecan pie, this simple recipe is tailor-made for you. Picture a baked buttery crust, a luscious nutty filling, and an abundance of pecans.
For the Crust:
- 3/4 cup (170g) of softened Butter
- 1 3/4 cups (220g) of Flour
- 1/3 cup (67g) of Sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon of Salt
For the Filling:
- 1½ cups (495g) of light or golden Corn Syrup
- 4 Eggs
- 2/3 cup (133g) of dark or light Brown Sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon of Salt
- 2 teaspoons of Vanilla Extract
- 2 cups of chopped Pecans
Let’s dive in:
- First things first, it’s crust time! Preheat your oven to 350°F. Grab a 9×13-inch (that’s roughly 22x23cm) baking dish, line it with foil, and set it aside.
- In a spacious bowl or the bowl of a trusty stand mixer, toss in the softened butter, sugar, flour, and salt. Now, let’s get mixin’. Beat it all together until the mixture takes on the look of coarse crumbs.
- Take this delightful mixture and press it evenly into the bottom of your prepared pan.
- Off to the oven it goes for about 18-20 minutes, or until those edges boast a delightful light golden hue. While that’s happening, let’s work on the filling.
- Onto the star of the show, the pecan pie filling: In a roomy bowl, start whisking together the corn syrup, eggs, salt, and vanilla extract. Keep at it until everything plays nice and combines. Now, it’s time to add those wonderful chopped pecans and give it all a good stir.
- Pour this heavenly batter right over the crust and slide it back into the oven for a cozy 30-35 minutes.
Once it’s done, give it some time to cool down completely. Then, for the final touch, pop it in the fridge until it’s perfectly set. After that, it’s the delightful moment you’ve been waiting for: cutting into these scrumptious bars. Enjoy!
