Pecan Pie Bars Recipe @pinch

These pecan pie bars have all the flavors of pecan pie but can be made in a snap. The base is a delicious shortbread cookie crust. Then there is a gooey and sweet topping filled with chopped pecans. Simple to make, this recipe is an easy way to enjoy the flavors of pecan pie. I call these 'lazy girl' pecan pie bars. Bring these to a gathering, and you'll never have leftovers. Which, in my opinion, is not always a good thing. Make sure to keep some for yourself, or you might miss out!
