"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."

"BJ6751 You might have not baked it long enough or used to much liqued. Next time you make them make sure you let them bake to the recommended time. I love this Recipe I use dark corn syrup for a richer tasting filling You can also substitute brown sugar for the white. or use half white half brown. Hope they turn out better for you next time."

"I have found that using cooking spray{Pam} makes cleanup very simple. I also have found that if these are taken out of the oven too soon they are difficult to cut. The first time I made them they bubbled when ready but i tried to rush them once and they did not bubble and were sticky. Now that i always wait for the bubble stage and therefore the full cooking time, they are easy to cut. they are a huge hit with everybody I have made them for. They are addictive so be careful!"

"I made these yesterday for Thanksgiving. The taste is nice but my filling was WAY to watery, ran off the crust. IF I make these again I might reduce the eggs to 2 and use less Karo syrup & sugar. Anyone else have this trouble ? Overall pretty disappointed."
