Pecan Butter Tart Bars - Barres aux pacanes

Pecan Butter Tart Bars

This had to be the best bars I have ever made.  These bars have a rich butter base, a layer of pecans, lot's of them, and a gooey butter caramel topping.  The recipe is inspired from Canadian Living Tested 'till perfect kitchen.  I triple-tested this recipe before sharing it with you.  It is a new favorite in my kitchen and I already have requests for the Holidays.  Talking about the Holidays, in a month we will be celebrating Christmas Eve.  I am starting to think about my menu.  This is such a great time of the year because we get to spend it with my kids and family.

PECAN BUTTER TART BARS

Ingredients

Base:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup cold butter, cubed

Topping:
3/4 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup corn syrup
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp all-purpose flour
pinch salt

Directions:
1- Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 9-inch square pan with parchment paper.
2- In a bowl mix the flour with the brown sugar. Cut in butter until the mixture is crumbly. Press firmly on the pan. Bake at 350F for 10 minutes. Top with pecans, press lightly and bake for another 5 minutes.
3- Meanwhile prepare topping. In a bowl cream butter with brown sugar and corn syrup. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in flour and salt. Pour over base and bake 20 minutes.
4- Let cool at room temperature. Cut into bars.

Je partage des barres aux pacanes qui sont les meilleures barres que j'ai fait dans ma cuisine.  La base est riche en beurre, il y a un étage de pacanes et pour finir le tout ces barres sont recouvertes d'un mélange de beurre-caramel.  J'ai trouvé la recette sur le site de Canadian Living.  J'ai fait cette recette plusieurs fois avant de la partager.  Elle a été acclamée de tous.  Ces barres sont déjà en demande, pour les fêtes, par ma famille.  Les fêtes approchent à grands pas.  Dans un mois nous allons célébrer la veille de Noël en famille.  Quel beau temps de l'année.  J'aime bien car nous passons du temps avec mes enfants et famille.

  21. Goodness these sound so good! I haven't made pecan squares in quite some time and even then, I poured chocolate on them, so that wasn't authentic. I'd love a little piece right now -- perfect for an afternoon snack with a good book.
