RECIPE: Pecan Pie Bars

rusty_nsMarch 13, 2007

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

---------------

Pecan Pie Bars

Base:

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

Topping:

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.

Note:

Chocolate cake mix is also good for this recipe.
