These bars were a huge hit with family and friends. After making them the first time, I found the cookie crust/base a little thicker than I wanted. So the second time I made them, I reduced the volumes by 1/4, so it was more like a thin shortbread on the bottom. Worked out well, plus maybe, just maybe took a few calories out of this incredibly rich bar. I would definitely cut it into smaller than 16 pieces!

I made this recipe last night for a Christmas Eve Dinner. This was my 1st attempt to make it (I've never made a pie before). It was amazing, it tasted just like a Pecan Pie.Everyone loved them! Highly recommend it.

Just made these for Christmas goodie packages...these are just like the pecan bars Starbucks used to sell!!!! Crust is buttery and filling not too sweet. Perfect bar cookie.

These were delicious. Be sure to use real butter. Added some himalayan pink salt to the tops of a few bars to try-oh my! Just a bit really brings out the nuttiness and caramel flavors. Will possibly add to all the next time I make if my family all likes. Would stick better if added when hot.

I made these and cut in 1 inch squares for a bridal tea. They were the one goody that was almost gone at the end of the tea.
