Bars, Dessert

Pecan Chewy Bars

Pecan-Chewies-2These bars are so simple and come together so quickly, but they are so good. Like crazy addictive. I am seriously considering making these instead of pie at Thanksgiving next year.

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs, well beaten
  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla

Preheat the oven to 300°F and lightly spray a 13×9-inch* baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Melt butter, add sugars, and blend well by hand. Add beaten eggs, stir well. Add flour and stir until all lumps are gone. Add pecans and vanilla. Pour into the prepared baking dish. Bake approximately 40 to 50 minutes being cautious not to over cook. They will still be jiggly in the middle.

*I used a slightly smaller rectangular baking dish because I wanted them to be slightly thicker, but use whichever you want.
