Maple Pecan Pie Bars: Crunchy brown sugar pecans float on gooey, silky maple filling, and all that maple goodness rests on a buttery pecan shortbread crust.
Let me tell you a story
I don’t have words for stories today, only for Maple Pecan Pie Bars. This might also be a symptom of Too Much Turkey Syndrome. Not sure. Doesn’t matter. Moving on.
These bars have everything you love about pecan pie with the addition of maple sugar and a pecan shortbread crust.
Buttery shortbread pairs perfectly with the nutty toasted pecans to create a pecan lovers dream!
And then there is the maple. I love me some maple syrup. Only Organic Grade B syrup made in the USofA for me. It packs the most flavor and that’s what this is all about, right?
Retorhical question. I know you’re here for flavor. And flavor is what you’ll get!
Each bite has sweet brown sugar maple filling, crunchy toasted pecans and buttery, soft pecan shortbread.
Isn’t this awesome? Where else can I talk about beautiful forks and sweet, buttery maple pecan pie bars all in one fail swoop? Sigh, blogging. Fab.
Now, I do cook this pie filling in a double boiler while the shortbread pre-bakes. I know that is more complicated than some other recipes, but you have to wait until the crust bakes anyways, so why not start pre-cooking the filling while you do it?
Bring these bars to your next holiday party or just anywhere, and you’ll be more popular than Zack on Saved by the Bell. (That 90’s reference just happened…)
But, seriously, Zack was my favorite.
Much like these maple pecan pie bars.
Easier than pie. #fact
