Pecan Pie in bar form? Yes, please!
One of my absolute favorite Christmas cookies are Pecan Tassies. My Grandmother used to make them and then my Mom and now me. They bring back great Christmas memories of driving to my Grandparent’s house on Christmas Eve, eating Swiss Cheese Fondue and all the other amazing foods my Grandmother used to make.
I’ve never made a Pecan Pie. I’ve never really been a nut person and there seems to be so many of them in this pie. But then I saw the bar form of this pie and I figured I could tweak it just a little and they would be delicious. I was willing to give it a try.
The bottom layer is a flaky cookie type crust and the top layer? Oh man! The toffee chips with pecans and a lightly sprinkling of chocolate chips on top make this a definite heck yeah!
I didn’t listen to the direction on the recipe (argh.) The edges were getting so brown and the inside was still giggly, but I was afraid I was going to burn it. I took it out a little too early and it was pretty gooey in the middle. Don’t get me wrong, it was awesomely delicious, but gooey. (So maybe that’s not a bad thing???)
Don’t they look wonderful?
If you want more of a Pecan Pie and less of the toffee, add 2 cups of pecans instead of just 1/2. You can also use pecan halves which would look pretty (but I’d rather not have half of a pecan.)
Thank you to The Girl Who Ate Everything for this recipe.
These were a huge hit with everyone! Definitely a recipe I will make again!
