Reviews forPecan Pie Bars
"I can't understand all the 5 star reviews as I thought these were slightly better than terrible. The recipe really needs tweeking because the end result is a thick layer of crust with a very thin layer of pecan topping. You would get a similar effect if you spread 1/4 t. of peanut butter over a piece of bread and called that a peanut butter sandwich. Nope, that's mostly just a piece of bread. The filling/topping needs to be doubled at least, but I'm not sure that would really fix this recipe. As it was, I added additional pecans because I knew 1 cup would not be enough for a 13 x 9 pan. However, additional pecans really didn't help because there just wasn't enough gooey topping (these bars are nothing like pecan pie). The bars really didn't look very nice either and were totally ignored at my party. Consequently, most of them were trashed. I definitely won't make these again."
"These are delicious! So easy, yet so good!"
"QUESTION: Are the chips supposed to be soft like chocolate chips? The only kind of toffee flavored bits at Krogers where I shop are made by Heath, are crunchy and come in an 8 ounce bag. I know I will love these, which is why I gave them 5 stars....if I ever find out what product I am supposed to use."
"I love pecan pie, but I love these even more because they are so amazingly simple to make! I made them for a party and they were a big hit. Unfortunately, I didn't have any to bring home to the family afterwards. I will definitely make them again!"
"These bars were amazing! I made them for a family reunion and everyone raved about them! We especially liked the addition of the English toffee bits."
"I made these this weekend for a cookout and everybody loved them! I added chocolate in the middle to make them "Derby Bars," like you suggested on Facebook Live - great, great tip!"
"Really good and easy!"
