Rich & Gooey Pecan Pie Bars

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Me & Mr. Jones

I begged for this recipe from my next-door neighbor, when I was in jr. high. She and her sisters used to do some catering on the side, and this was one of their most requested items. This recipe utilizes yellow cake mix for the crust, and not a single egg! Rich, gooey, and oh so good! (NOTE: Pillsbury Moist Deluxe is the best cake mix for these.)

I have had this recipe printed out for three years and finally made it. I should have read the reviews because it was gooey and I did panic then put it in the freezer for a bit so I could cut them and oh they are delicious. I am taking them to a party tomorrow and I bet I get asked for the recipe. Thanks.
