Ingredients

Crust:

  • 1/3 Cup Ground Pecans
  • 1 Cup Flour
  • 1/3 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/3 Cup Butter

Pecan Filling:

  • 1/3 Cup Butter
  • 2/3 Cups Brown Sugar packed
  • 3 Tbsp Honey
  • 2 1/2 Cups Chopped Pecans
  • 1/3 Cup Heavy Cream
  • 16 Pecan Halves (optional)

Instructions

  • Gather your ingredients, preheat your oven to 350 degrees, line an 8x8 baking dish with tin foil and spray it with non-stick cooking spray.

Crust:

  • Pulse enough pecans in a food processor to get 1/3 cup ground pecans. (See note)
  • Add the flour and brown sugar. Pulse to mix. Add the butter and pulse until the mixture is crumbly.
  • Press into the prepared baking dish. Set aside.

Pecan Filling:

  • In a small pot, bring the butter, brown sugar, and honey to a boil. Boil for 3 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the chopped pecans and heavy cream. Pour over the prepared crust.
  • If you choose to, place the 16 pecan halves in a 4x4 square pattern on the top of the filling.
  • Bake the pecan pie bars at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
  • Cool completely before cutting and serving.

Notes

  • If you find you have ground a bit more than 1/3 cup of pecans, just set the extra ground nuts aside and mix them into the filling when you add the chopped pecans.
  • Chilling the pecan pie bars before cutting them makes them much easier to cut.
