Pecan Pie Bars
These Pecan Pie Bars will please the most discriminating palette that darkens your table tonight. Pecan Pie Bars are a wonderful sweet treat that serve up well with fresh whipped cream (unsweetened) or ice cream, as you prefer. Either way, every one will line up for seconds for this dream dessert. These bars likely originated as the classic sugar pie, famous in Quebec, Canada, and popularized in many cultures. There is plenty of debate about who invented it first. But, we do not care. All that matters is the recipe is fabulous, whether made as bars, like here, or in a pie.
These bars are easy to make, but use the real deal with every ingredient to get the maximum flavor impact. So choose butter rather than margarine for the cake base, and think about dark brown sugar rather than the light called for in the recipe for the filling. Sugar pie (the original recipe) is all about the flavor of the sugar, so the darker the sugar, the better it is. Pecans add their own special touch to this recipe. Pecans, with loads of nutrient value, too, help slow down the absorption of all that sugar in to your blood stream. Hopefully, as a result, you will not get the proverbially sugar high that accompanies eating such a sweet dessert. Frankly, though, it is worth it for this delectable treat.
Enjoy these Pecan Pie Bars whenever you want something that is extra sweet, but also brilliantly composed. The sweetness here is well balanced against the cake base and the pecans in the recipe. It is quick, easy, if a little pricey due to the cost of pecans these days. So make them when you have a few extra dollars for groceries. Enjoy!
