Easy Pecan Pie Bars Recipe

by Friend Recipes

These easy-to-make pecan pie bars are flaky and delicious, with a custard-like filling and a simple pressed crust. For this filling, melt butter, light corn syrup, dark brown sugar, eggs, vanilla essence, and salt are combined. All that remains is to pour the mixture into the prepared crust and bake after adding the pecan halves. These bars are delicious on their own, but a scoop of vanilla ice cream will not hurt either.

Traditional pecan pie can be made more simply with these delicious pecan pie bars, but they pack a ton of flavor.

This recipe makes 28 squares, so it is perfect for baking when you are feeding a large group as it fits in a 13-by-9-inch baking dish. (With the pan, moving them is also a breeze.)

WHAT INGREDIENTS ARE NEEDED FOR THIS MEAL?

  • 3 cups plain flour
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt and one-cup margarine
  • 1 1/2 cups light corn syrup
  • White sugar, 1 1/2 cups
  • Four eggs
  • 3 teaspoons of melted margarine
  • Vanilla extract, 1 1/2 tbsp.
  • Pecans, chopped, 2 ½ cups

THE MOST EFFICIENT WAY TO MAKE PECAN PIE BARS

Set the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees C). 10×15-inch jelly pan, lightly oiled.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, and one/2 cup sugar. Once the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs, stir in 1 cup of margarine. Then spread the mixture evenly on the prepared pan and press down to form a crust.

Bake for 20 minutes in a preheated oven.

Meanwhile, combine corn syrup, 1 1/2 cups sugar, eggs, 3 tablespoons of margarine, and vanilla in a large bowl. Once the cooked crust comes out of the oven, stir in the chopped pecans and pour the filling evenly over it.

After about 25 minutes of baking in the preheated oven, the filling should harden. Allow the cake to cool completely in the pan on a wire rack before cutting it into bars.

SHOULD PECAN BARS BE REFRIGERATED?

Bars made with pecans do not require refrigeration. Store in an airtight container for up to three days.

CAN YOU BAKE THE PECAN PIE THE DAY BEFORE?

Homemade pecan pie can be prepared 1-3 days in advance. The cake should be baked, allowed to cool completely, then covered and chilled. I prefer to take it out of the fridge an hour before serving.

HOW LONG CAN PECAN PIE BE STORED IN THE REFRIGERATOR?

The pecan pie can be refrigerated for up to 4-6 hours. The best way to preserve the taste and freshness of the cake if you want to serve it later is to store it in the freezer. Pies that are frozen and unbaked should be used within two months; however, baked frozen pies can last up to four months.

WHAT SHOULD BE SERVED WITH PECAN PIE?

Other common additions to the recipe include chocolate and bourbon whiskey. Vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, or hard sauce are often added to pecan pies.
