Description

No need to make a whole pie when you can enjoy these single sized servings of the classic Thanksgiving dessert. Rich with maple syrup, pecans and brown sugar, these just might be … the death of my skinny jeans.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE SHORTBREAD CRUST:
  • 1 cup All-purpose Flour
  • ¼ cups Golden Brown Sugar, Packed
  • ⅛ teaspoons Salt
  • 6 Tablespoons Cold Salted Butter, Cut Into Slices
  • _____
  • FOR THE PECAN TOPPING:
  • 4 Tablespoons Salted Butter
  • ½ cups Golden Brown Sugar, Packed
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • ¼ cups Pure Maple Syrup
  • 1 Tablespoon Cream
  • 1 cup Pecan Pieces

Preparation

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

To prepare the crust, in a large bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar and salt. Cut in the cold butter with your fingers, working the mixture together until crumbs form.

Press shortbread into a nine-inch pan sprayed with cooking spray and bake for twenty minutes, or until golden.

Remove the hot crust from the oven and set aside. For the pecan topping, in a small saucepot, melt the butter. Add the brown sugar, vanilla, maple syrup and cream and whisk well. Simmer for one minute while whisking continuously. Add the pecans and pour into the hot crust.

Bake for 18-20 minutes. When done, remove from the oven and let cool for half an hour. This gives the bars a chance to harden.

Enjoy!

Wow, what a great answer to the overly gooey pecan pie.
Congrats for being a featured recipe.

These got absolute raves at our family Thanksgiving. They were quick to make and not sicky-sweet like some pecan pies I’ve known. I couldn’t ask for a better dessert!

I made these for a potluck last Thanksgiving and they were a huge hit! Thanks for the great recipe – it’s so much more convenient than cooking a whole pie!

Honestly? These are addictive. I love the fact that they can be whipped up in no time and the brown butter/toasted pecan thing is, well, amazing!
This is one for the files. :)
love,
