Scrumptious Pecan Pie Bars Recipe

Disclosure AffiliatePecan Pie Bars

One of my very favorite parts of Thanksgiving is my mom’s pecan pie. It is SO good! It was the best when my sister lived in Texas and was able to gather pecans from the tree in her front yard. But, even with store-bought pecans it is super yummy. But sometimes pie isn’t the most convenient dessert to serve or to eat – especially in a party setting. This Pecan Pie Bars Recipe is perfect for occasions where a hand-held dessert is more convenient, for bake sales and just everyday snacking.

The #1 reason it’s so easy to make is that you don’t need a pie crust like with a pecan pie. Instead you just press a 4-ingredient dough into the bottom of your pan. Easy peasy!
