DIRECTIONS

  • 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.
