Pear Bars With Pear Sauce

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by startnover

This is a great way to use ripe or over ripe pears. I had a hard time with submitting it so to clarify, 1-1/2 cups of the pear sauce is used in the bar recipe. You use the other 1-1/2 c of sauce as a garnish.

I had some pears that were going bad so I made 1.5 of the sauce. In the bars I used 2 eggs and 1/2 cup oil and they were quite good. We put a thin layer of the pear sauce on top which was ok, but I think I'd prefer it without any pear sauce on top. We were divided here; 1/2 of us loved the pear sauce on top and the other 1/2 did not. I'm going to freeze the pear sauce in 1.5 cup portions to pull out and use to make this cake. It will be a good lunchbox addition. Thanks.
