Pecan Pie Bars for a Crowd Recipe

I love to cook large quantities and do most of the cooking for our church functions. People seem to enjoy these scrumptious bars even more than pecan pie. -Clara Honeyager North Prairie, Wisconsin

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.
