Pecan pie and buttery shortbread – does life get any better? I don’t think so! We’ve got apple desserts, pumpkin desserts and now it’s time for some pecan pie action. I don’t know about you guys, but in my house pecan pie is a must for Thanksgiving, and I am so excited to share this bar version with you!
These decadent pecan pie bars are the next recipe in the Pure Holiday series and they truly are everything you love, want and expect in pecan pie minus the work! Win, win! And spoiler alert: If you think they look good now, wait till you see them all dressed up!
So you guys know I love zhushing up the classics and I couldn’t wait to put my own spin on pecan pie for the holidays. I wanted to kick up the classic and also create something that was easy to make, which is when I thought of bars – I’m all about packing everything you love into one hand-held treat!
I swapped out traditional pie crust for brown sugar shortbread – always a good idea in my book! Then I made a quick pecan pie filling, which is just a super buttery, nutty, vanilla-filled, almost toffee-like filling, and the results were nothing short of divine!
So just when I thought these cannot possibly get any better, I proved myself so wrong. I busted out the dark chocolate, drizzled it over the top and then sprinkled on some flaked sea salt.
There aren’t even words… And how pretty and festive do they look all dressed up?
