Irresistibly tasty, hassle-free treat with simple ingredients.


When daydreaming about the perfect dessert, my mind (and taste buds) automatically drift to pecan pie bars.

I love baking a batch of this sweet snack and getting my friends together for an afternoon of catching up.

Pecan pie bars are one of those guilty pleasures I rarely feel guilty over—I’ll easily reach for one or two (or three). They’re that good.

And when they’re homemade, using the best ingredients, you’ll find yourself coming back to this recipe repeatedly. 

Pecan pie is one of the South’s most cherished desserts with a cultural history as rich as its syrup. Pecan pie bars are everything we love about pecan pie in a bite-sized package.

If you’d like to intensify the pecans’ flavor, toast them before adding them to the filling.

You can make this deliciousness three days ahead. They contain eggs, so keep them nicely wrapped in the fridge and take them out 30-40 minutes before to take the chill off.

Before serving, allow it to thaw in the fridge and then place it on a counter until it reaches room temperature. 

Decadent pecan pie in a convenient bar is pure heaven. Who will you make this recipe for? Drop a line in the comments. 😍
