Pecan Pie Bars No Corn Syrup Recipe

If you love pecan pie, you’re going to love this easy bar recipe! I typically make them with a homemade shortbread crust but this version saves time by using packaged sugar cookie mix and it’s a delicious alternative.

The center is made with brown sugar, eggs, vanilla, and chopped pecans. One taste and you’ll see why we love our pecans! The sweet and mild combination is one of my favorites.
