This recipe calls for a box cake mix. I’m one of those people who really love cooking from scratch sometimes … and really love cooking semi-homemade the rest of the time. If I can utilize a cake box mix to make these amazing pecan pie bars … well then … that’s exactly what I’m gonna do!
How to make Pecan Pie Bars:
- Crust. You’ll want to make the crust first by mixing the cake mix with one egg and a stick of butter that’s been melted. Press this mixture into the bottom of a 9″ x 13″ baking dish that has been greased. Pop it into a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes and then take it out and set it aside.
- Pecan Pie Filling. In a mixing bowl, combine the light corn syrup, light brown sugar, eggs, vanilla extract and chopped pecans. Pour this over the crust and bake for 40-45 minutes.
- Cool. Remove from the oven and run a sharp knife around the outside edges to help loosen from the baking dish. Let cool completely before cutting into squares.
