Pecan Pie Bars With Shortbread Crust


Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup Sue Bee® Honey
  • 3/4 cup cold butter
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups coarsely chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons whipping cream

Directions

  • Set oven to 350 F, set oven rack to second-lowest position.
  • Butter a 13 x 9-inch baking pan.
  • In a processor blend all ingredients until mixture begins to form small clumps.
  • Sprinkle the mixture into prepared baking pan.
  • Lightly press the mixture down with a spatula (do not pat down too much).
  • Bake in the second-lowest oven rack for 20 minutes until golden.
  • Meanwhile prepare the filling/topping: In a heavy saucepan melt butter and stir in brown sugar, honey and whipping cream; simmer mixture for about 1 minute, stirring occasionally.
  • Stir in chopped pecans.
  • Pour the pecan mixture over hot shortbread crust and spread evenly in the pan.
  • Bake on the second-lowest oven rack for about 20-22 minutes.
  • Cool completely in the pan. These bars will cut better if refrigerated.
