PECAN PIE BARS

Pecan-Pie-BarsThese Pecan Pie Bars taste like pecan pie in a bar and they are wonderful with coffee.  They are great to take to a pot luck or an office party because you can slice them the size you want and the recipe makes a lot.  No matter if you make them for your family or guests, they won’t last long.

Crust

1 cup graham cracker crumbs (I put the crackers in a plastic bag and crush them with a rolling pin until I get a cup)

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 cup whole wheat flour

1/2 cup rolled oats, uncooked (can use the minute or instant oat, too)

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 1/2 sticks or 12 tablespoons or 3/4 cup butter, softened

In a large mixing bowl combine the graham cracker crumbs, all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour,  rolled oats and brown sugar.  Whisk together with wire whisk. Cut in the butter until mixture is like coarse crumbs.  Spray a 9 x 13 casserole dish with cooking spray and press your crust into the bottom of the dish.  Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 15 minutes. Remove and set aside.

Topping for Crust

5 eggs

3/4 cup dark corn syrup

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup white granulated sugar

1 1/2 to 2 cups pecans

Beat eggs (I just do this with a wire whisk).  Add corn syrup, vanilla and granulated sugar.  Mix well.  Pour this over your crust.  Sprinkle the pecans over the top.  Reduce oven heat to 300 and bake 45 to 50 minutes until sets up.  Remove from oven and let cool about 10 minutes before cutting.  Cut the size you like and Enjoy!

Note:  These bars are rich and contain a lot of sugar and butter but they are very good and you don’t have to eat the whole pan at one time.  I refrigerate or keep in a cool place and they keep well. One of these with my coffee in the morning will do me for something sweet.

  1. Outstanding, will make theses!

  2. Oh yum! It’s getting close to that time of the year for pecan pie. Maybe I’ll do this in exchange for one of them!

  3. I can’t have the wheat flour,what can I use instead.

  4. I have everything I need in the house to make these except the whole wheat flour. Could I just use 2 cups all purpose?
