I've been stirring up batches of these tasty bar cookies for many years, and they're a big hit wherever I share them. The bars have all the goodness of pecan pie and are so easy to serve to a crowd. -Debbie Fogel, East Berne, New York

MY REVIEW

OMG!!! These are so good. I made them for a dear friend and couldn't help digging in and before all was over, I ate half myself!!!

This is a recipe worth doing and (guess what) it is easy as well!!!

When I rate a recipe 3 stars means ordinary, 4 stars means much, much better than average, and 5 stars means super wonderfully great tasting. I'd give this recipe more than 5 stars if I could. This is my "go to" recipe when a really impressive goody is required.

These are magnifico!! I don't like pecan pie, but I couldn't stop eating these. I served them on my desert table at Thanksgiving, everyone gaves them high fives....

These are absolutely marvelous. Christmas would not be the same if I did not have these in the house when my four children and their families came home. They bake perfect every time. I just sent this recipe to my sister who requested it.

These are soooo good! I made it once with honey and the second time with light corn syrup. The edges can get crispy, but for most people I made these for, this was their favorite part.
