Family Favorites

This is a recipe that I made for the first time only recently and it has quickly become a family favorite!!

If you love pecan pie, this is going to twist your socks!!! I was really surprised at how much like pecan pie these bars tasted and a bonus.....they are SO easy to make!!!

As always, if you enjoy these leave a comment and let me know!!!!

Caramel Pecan Bars


1 Cup butter
2¼ Cups packed brown sugar
2 Eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1½ Cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 Cups chopped pecans
Confectioners' sugar, optional


1. In a saucepan, heat butter and brown sugar over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. In a mixing bowl, combine the eggs, vanilla and butter mixture. Combine flour and baking powder, gradually add to the butter mixture. Stir in pecans.

2. Spread into a greased 13x9x2 inch baking pan. Bake at 350ยบ for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out with moist crumbs and edges are crisp. Cool in pan on a wire rack. Dust with confectioners' sugar if desired. Cut into bars


I got this recipe out of Taste of Home's, The Ultimate Cookie Collection.
