I love pecans and pecan pie anything. I found several recipes online but decided to go with this one. I typically like brown sugar in the crust and thought this one would be a winner. I was right! The bottom had a little bit of a chewy, caramelized texture. These bars are fabulous. Be sure to spray the pan very well!!
