Reviews for Pecan Pie Bars
"I have made these for years after getting them out of a holiday cookie version of the TOH cookbook. Love them! I've used walnuts, almonds, and pecans and they all work great. When I use almonds, I add some chocolate chips after baking to the top and spread thinly once they start to melt. Instant almond toffee bars. My favorite TOH recipe by far!"
"These sounds wonderful! I had to rate them in order to ask this question so I gave 5 stars for that reason. I'm wondering if I can use walnuts instead of pecans as I have a freezer full of walnuts, and I do have to use them instead of buying pecans. If anyone knows please let me know as soon as possible. I just may make them anyway and I will report back."
"This sounds so good. It sounds like it would be simple to make. My family likes pecan pie so I am sure they will like these."
"I made these following the recipe, also concerned about the toffee chips, but they are excellent! I took them to work and everone loved them and when I told them how easy they were to make they wanted the recipe. I cut them into small pieces as they are rich! Definately a new holiday addition to bake!"
"After trying several other recipes for pecan pie bars, I found this recipe to be the most delicious. At first I was concerned about adding a bag of English toffee bits to the mixture, but found that it added just the right amount of sweetness. My husband loved these and I plan to make them often."
