These are delicious! Very good flavor....the crust is very buttery and goes so well with the pecan filling. The only downfall is that it is very very sweet. My husband said they were too rich for him. Next time I make them, I will cut the sugar in half. Otherwise, I like them better than a pecan pie!

My problem was that I used the right size pan. Lost half of topping in the oven while baking! Omg how do I get baked Karo syrup cleaned up????? Otherwise it is tasty what is left.

These are delicious and addicting. The crust is buttery goodness and the filling is rich and nutty. I made these to give away and attached the recipe. I will definitely make them again.

These are delicious. They are not as sweet and gooey as traditional pecan pie. It also worked well for me as I struggle with rolling pie crusts. I baked it on the large Pampered Chef bar pan. We will definitely make this again.Taste of Home Volunteer Field Editor

Excellent recipe! Everyone loved them! Followed recipe exactly as written, except I unintentionally used 4 Tbsp butter in the filling. I cooked it for 33 minutes in a convection oven. Edges were slightly crunchy when cooled but I love that!

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!
