Curl up with a hot cup of coffee and one of these treats from Gibsonia, Pennsylvania's Dianna Croskey. The golden topping and flaky crust give way to the heartwarming taste of old-fashioned pecan pie.

"YUM YUM! We enjoyed these...the buttery crust, creamy filling, the toffee chips and the toasty pecans. Will make again for sure. May try next time in an 8x8 dish to make thicker, but worked great in the 13x9 dish."

"So delicious. These are my husbands favorite. One tip I would give is to be sure to heavily butter your pan or you will have a very difficult time getting the bars out of the pan. Even better, I like to line the baking pan with aluminum foil or parchment paper so that you can easily lift the bars right out of the pan. I like this method the best."

"This is one of our family favorites. We enjoy these bars more than pecan pie. Make them just as the recipe states and your family will love them too."
