Easy Pecan Pie Bars

Recipe by marna

We make this every Christmas and for my husbands birthday instead of making pecan pie.

Just like pecan pie! I made these for a teacher's luncheon so bars worked out better than a pie would have. I got rave reviews. I have also halved this recipe and used an 8x8 pan. Yummy!
