Lazy Pecan Pie Bars


Lazy Pecan Pie Bars

My grandmother calls them her “lazy” bars because she makes them when she wants something tasty but doesn’t want to do a lot of work.


1 cup all-purpose flour

1/3 cup light brown sugar, packed

1/4 teaspoon salt


1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed

1/2 cup corn syrup

1/2 cup granulated sugar

2 large eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla extract


1 tablespoon melted butter

1 1/2 cups chopped pecans


Preheat your oven to 350 °F (175 ° C). Line a 20cm square baking tin with baking paper, leaving an overhang for easy removal.
Crust: In a medium bowl, combine flour, brown sugar and salt. Stir in the cold butter until the mixture is crumbly.Press firmly into the bottom of the prepared pan to form a crust. Bake for 15 minutes until lightly golden brown.

Filling: While dough is baking, stir together corn syrup, granulated sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, and melted butter in a large bowl. Add the nuts. Spread evenly over the pre-baked base.Bake for another 20-25 minutes or until the filling is set.
Allow to cool completely in the tin on a rack. Lift the bars with the parchment before cutting them into squares.


Variations and Tips:

Boost the nutty flavor by mixing it with chocolate chips or using half walnuts.
For a festive touch, season the filling with cinnamon or nutmeg.These bars will keep in an airtight container at room temperature for a few days or in the refrigerator for a firmer consistency.

Would you rather avoid corn syrup? Honey is a delicious substitute for a nuanced flavor profile.
