Pecan Pie Bars

We have a new favorite spot where we go for food inspiration, Baked Bree. Every photo, recipe and story is creative and beautiful, just like the creator behind the blog, Bree Hester. We didn’t realize when she agreed to be a guest at our table today, that she was also the co-editor of  The Creative Mama. She’s pretty much our kinda gal…she loves to cook, create and she’s a mama to a three, very different kids. Please welcome her to our table today! 


Thank you so much for having me for this year’s Virtual Cookie Exchange! I am thrilled that you asked me to be a part of it.

I am sharing my recipe for Pecan Pie Bars. I adore pecan pie, but after a heavy meal, it is just, well, too much even for my sweet tooth. I have solved my problem by making a more manageable way to indulge my pecan pie craving via cookie. I have to be honest, I am starting to like these more than the pie these days. So much easier, and an added bonus – no pie crust.

These are heavenly during the holidays, but really they are good any time of year.
