. . . Easy Peasy Pecan Pie Bars . . .

I love Pecan Pie and look forward to this time of year because it just seems to go together!  I have been craving it for at least a week or two and decided instead of making an actual pie I'd give a Pecan Pie Bar recipe a try.  Boy, am I glad I tried this one out because it was scrumptious and easy and "pie".  I will for sure be adding this to my go to dessert recipe list.  I love how simple it is to make since the crust is just store bought sugar cookie dough and a little flour.  The filling took two minutes to whip up and then I was done.  The hardest part of this recipe was waiting until it came out of the oven so I could eat it!


 You will need:
1 package refrigerated sugar cookie dough
  ½ c. all purpose flour
3 eggs
¾ c. light corn syrup
¾ c. sugar
    1 tsp. Molasses
¼ tsp. salt
3 c. chopped pecans
**The original recipe called for dark corn syrup and vanilla but I only had light corn syrup on hand so I used the light corn syrup and added molasses in place of the vanilla.

 • Gather your ingredients
• Mix flour and sugar cookie dough until blended
• Press the dough into a lightly greased baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes
• While the crust is baking beat the eggs until fluffy 
• Add remaining ingredients except for the pecans 
• Your mixture will be runny and a light brown color 
• Pull the baked crust out of the oven and get ready to pour your filling over it

 • Pour the liquid filling over the baked crust
• Add your chopped pecans to the mixture and spread evenly
• Bake for an additional 25 to 30 minutes.  Let cool completely then cut into bars.

Pecan Goodness!
