RECIPE: Pecan Pie Bars

rusty_nsMarch 13, 2007

I make this recipe often so I thought I would share the recipe.


Pecan Pie Bars


18 1/4 ounces (1 box) butter pecan cake mix

(set aside 1 cup of dry cake mix from package)

1/4 cup butter, softened

1 egg, slightly beaten


3 eggs

3/4 cup packed brown sugar

3/4 cup dark corn syrup

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 cups coarsely chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a 9x13-inch baking pan; set aside.

Set aside second measure of the cake mix for the filling.

For the base, in a large mixing bowl combine cake mix, butter, and slightly beaten egg. Stir with a fork until crumbly. Turn into prepared pan. With lightly floured hands, press evenly onto the bottom to form a crust.

Bake for 12 minutes.

Meanwhile, for filling, in a medium bowl combine the second measure of eggs, brown sugar, corn syrup and vanilla. Add the reserved cake mix; stir with a fork just until blended. Some tiny cake clumps will remain. Spread filling evenly over baked crust; sprinkle with pecans.

Bake for 25 - 30 minutes or until filling appears set when pan is gently shaken. Cool completely on wire rack. Cut into bars.

Cover and chill to store.


Chocolate cake mix is also good for this recipe.
