Ready In:
1hr 10mins
1 9x13




  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF and line a 9x13-inch pan with foil, leaving enough for a 2-inch overhang on all sides.
  • For crust, cream together the butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Add in the flour and salt and mix until crumbly.
  • Press the crust into the foil-lined pan and bake for 20 minutes until golden brown.
  • While the crust bakes, prepare the filling by combining the butter, brown sugar, honey and heavy cream in a saucepan and stirring it over medium heat. Simmer the mixture for 1 minute, then stir in the chopped pecans.
  • Remove the crust from the oven and immediately pour the pecan filling over the hot crust spreading it to cover the entire surface.
  • Return the pan to the oven and bake an additional 20 minutes.
  • Remove the pan and allow the bars to fully cool in the pan.

<p>When I&nbsp;get time, I like to cook and I'm always willing to try something new. Fortunately, my DH likes to cook as well, so he helps out quite a bit. We enjoy having friends over for suppers/cook-outs now that we have our own house!&nbsp; I got my DH a Green Egg smoker for Christmas, which he loves and seems to be using about every weekend!<br />I have become addicted to this site and spend so much time (!) reading through recipes. Thus I have an ever-expandingto make list! I have a lot of cookbooks, but don't really use them as much since it's so much easier to come here and search by ingredient. I find it a challenge to have something in the fridge I need to use up, then find a dish to use it in. I will admit that I'm a cook who has to have a recipe--I add and take away based on our preferences (everything is better with fresh garlic and cheese!), but not much for making up original recipes.</p>
