"I cut the recipe in half, I cut the corn syrup to 1 cup, I only used 1/3 heaping cup of sugar. Loved this recipe!!"
"I made these for my apt complex Thanksgiving potluck and i won the award for Best dessert! !!!I was thrilled and overjoyed as i don't consider myself to be a good pastry chef. These bars were simply delicious. Thank you for this amazing recipe."
"These are the best pecan bars. They taste better to me than a pecan pie. Not as sweet. I made these for a July 4th gathering and people couldn't keep their hands out of them. My sister (who never asks me to bring anything) made me promise to make them for Thanksgiving."
"I lost this recipe and am SO HAPPY to find it again! This recipe is my son's favorite. It makes a lot, though, so I cut the recipe in half. Awesome!"
"These bars are excellent. I make a lot of cookies and brownies for Christmas and this recipe will be one that I will make over and over."
