These are probably my most requested dessert. Be sure to bake them until the center will no longer move when you shake the pan. Let them cool completely or you will have a mess! They always turn out great and they are SO easy!

Excellent. This is certainly the easiest of the "Pecan Pie Bar" category. However: The picture attached to this one is NOT, I repeat, NOT what these bars look like. Take the cake layer (in the middle) and move it to the bottom, and mix the other two layers on top and you have an idea closer to what they really are. Also, I agree with previous reviewers on this thread that this version may be a bit too gooey and will not stay together. However, they were much better after they had refridgerated for 24 hours and re-thawed, and I also may have accidentally added too much corn syrup. If this happens to you, no problem-- I still had people compliment them even when I myself was severely disappointed! I'm making these again tomorrow. I will update then.

This is the most delicious (and probably the least healthy) recipe on this website. I've made this quite a few times now, and I'm getting better at it. Bake the bottom layer for only 15 min, or until solid, just don't overcook it. Oh, and don't be afraid that it's so tough to spread over the bottom of the pan; it's meant to be that way, and you haven't done anything wrong. IMPORTANT: These WILL come out gooey. I ALWAYS cook them a day ahead of time and leave them in the fridge overnight BEFORE cutting them up. You can also use just 1 cup of corn syrup without much difference to the recipe. This way, you use exactly half of a bottle of Karo Dark Corn Syrup (8 oz = 1 cup). But still, the full amount will give you the full experience of these bars :)
