Sift together 2 cups flour and 2/3 cup powdered sugar. Cut in 3/4 cup softened butter using a pastry blender or fork just until mixture resembles coarse meal. Pat mixture on bottom and 1 1/2 inches up sides of a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch baking dish.
Bake at 350° for 20 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool.
Bring brown sugar, honey, 2/3 cup butter, and whipping cream to a boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in pecans, and pour hot filling into prepared crust.
Bake at 350° for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden and bubbly. Cool completely before cutting into 2-inch squares.
This is the same recipe as Caramel-Pecan Tart which is rated 5 Stars as well. You can bake it as bars or eat as a pie--both of which are outstanding. If having trouble with the crust crumbling, press it into the pan really well. Also, if using a convection oven, shorten the time by 1/3-1/2.
These are so easy and delicious. I would agree with a previous reviewer who stated that the crust should only extend about .5-1 inch up the sides of the pan. The filling is only about 0.5 inch thick, so the 1.5 inch looked silly. I much prefer this crust to pie crust, and don't miss the gooey inside of pecan pie at all.
This AWESOME!!!! A must try. Followed recipe and it turned out so good I couldn't believe it. I didn't have whipping cream so I made my own by using 3/4 cup milk with 1/3 melted butter. Whisk together and used the 3 Tablespoon the recipe called for. So so soooo good. Hope you will give it a try. Oh and by the way I think the crust was so good it could be eaten as a shortbread cookie all by itself.
These were an excellent addition to our holiday cookie trays this year! I especially liked the fact that they do not have Karo Syrup in them as some people are very sensitive about that. I will definitely be making them again.
These bars are so good and easy to make! It would have been easier if the store wasn't out of chopped pecans, and I didn't have to chop 3 1/2 cups of them. I've been in the mood for pecan pie lately. I'm a big fan but sometimes the gooey middle gets to be too much for me. These bars are the perfect substitute. They remind me of a pecan pie baklava hybrid. These will definitely be made again.
