Hi there everyone.
Another warm welcome to Ann from On sutton place sharing her home made Pecan shortbread bars
So happy to be back here at Debbie’s with a recipe that is sure to be a crowd pleaser…and it feeds a crowd too. These little bars are amazingly wonderful. The shortbread crust melts in your mouth and the topping has just the right amount of crunch and texture. Cut them small because they are rich and filling.
Pecan Shortbread Bars
1 c. butter softened (2 sticks)
2 c. flour
½ c. powdered sugar
½ c. sugar
1 c. light corn syrup
1 t. vanilla
½. stick butter melted
pinch of salt
2 c. pecans
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Lightly spray or butter sides only of a 9 x 13 pan.
Combine butter, flour and powdered sugar in the bowl of a standing mixer.
Beat until dough forms and it pulls away from sides of the bowl.
Press into pan.
Bake for 15 min.
While crust is baking:
Combine eggs and sugar.
Add corn syrup, salt, butter and vanilla.
Add pecans and pour mixture over crust.
Bake for 25 – 30 minutes. Top should be golden brown.
These would be perfect for Thanksgiving or Christmas. They can be made a day ahead and stay very fresh. I used chopped pecans because I thought the bars would be easier to cut. If you prefer whole pecans that’s perfectly fine.
Another super easy recipe that can be made ahead is what I call Better than Pumpkin Pie. All you need is 6 ingredients and a few minutes to throw this together. Your guests will think you went all out…it’s that good.
Happy Thanksgiving to you all and thank you so much for letting me hang out here every month. See you in December!
I’d love it if you would follow me on Pinterest, Facebook or Google+. Thanks!
This looked so good that I started making it immediately. I’m at the part where my crust is baking and I’m making the filling. What do I do with the 1/2 cup of melted butter? Do I mix it in with the other filling ingredients?
Yes Holly just dump it right in! I left that part out…I’ll have Debbie fix the post. Thank you so much for catching this!
I figured that was what I was supposed to do so I did and now they are cooling on my counter and smell soooo good. Thanks
Oops, I meant 1/2 stick of butter, not 1/2 cup. Thanks!
