    Tastes just like the pecan bars at my favourite bakery. The only thing I did different was add more pecans. Yum!  -  11 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    36 could anyone rate these anything other than a 5 star? I love these. Just made them for my husband's thanksgiving meal at work. These are great for a potluck because you can cut them up and dont need silverware, plates, etc. Much better than pecan pie, I think. Crust resembles shortbread...but a little different. I doubled the pecans as other reviewers suggested. I will definitely make these again...THANKS!  -  19 Nov 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    It's true to it's word if you love pecan pie you will love these bars. I doubled the recipe and bake it in a jelly roll twice as many and they were wonderful.  -  28 May 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
