"Excellent recipe! Everyone loved them! Followed recipe exactly as written, except I unintentionally used 4 Tbsp butter in the filling. I cooked it for 33 minutes in a convection oven. Edges were slightly crunchy when cooled but I love that!"

"Perfect results just as written! The potluck crowd went for seconds and I saw several being tucked away in napkins to take home, always an indication of a winner! Solution to pan cleanup problem: lightly spray pan, then line with parchment big enough to hang over on at least 2 sides. Spray the paper and proceed. When cooled, lift the uncut bars out of pan using the overhanging parchment for handles. The bars are easier to cut, and no sticky pan!"

"Very good. If I don't over bake them, then I like these bars better than pecan pie--easy for me to overbake though, so I need to watch the crust and the bars very closely. I think I overbake because they look runny so I let them go too long and then I overdo them. I have a hard time telling when the filling is "set"."

"They turned out a little gooier than I expected but were ABSALUTELY delicious! They will turn out a little better if you let them set in the refrigerator a few hours before cutting. Definitely going to make again!"

"Very yummy. Tastes just like pecan pie. Also very easy to make. I think the only thing I would change is to have a little bit thicker crust. Even in spite of that , this is a keeper."
