These taste just like pecan pie! I had trouble with the directions in figuring out why the two rectangles were mentioned. Fairly quick and really easy. I used non stick spray but mine stuck to the sides some. The edge pieces could be hand held to nibble on, but the center ones needed a fork as the filling was gooey and too messy to be picked up. I added another handful of pecans since it seemed to need more. Overall, this was very good.
The topping is good, but we did not care for the crescent roll crust! Look up the recipe for "pecan pie bars I", and with just the few extra minutes it takes to make the crust, you will have amazing pecan pie bars that are better than pecan pie!
I made this about a month ago for an appetizer night. Everything had to be finger food. This was a huge hit and I have been requested to bring it to Thanksgiving instead of Pecan Pie (along with a Chocolate and Pumpkin Pie). If you can buy the Crescent Sheet it is so much easier. If you don't get the perforations completely sealed the topping will seap out and make a mess. Also make sure the sides come up as high on the pan as possible or it sill seap underneath. I read where someone had to eat the middle with a fork as it was to gooey. I did not have that problem. It was a tab limper than the edges but was still easy to carry. Maybe their's wasn't quite done or I got lucky. I did make mine a day ahead so it is possible sitting that extra time helped. The taste was every bit as good as pecan pie and to me it is so much easier to eat and to make. Enjoy
Delicious, brought them to work & people are slobbering all over them. I made a smaller amount. I used 3 of the crescents for my son's breakfast. Pressed the other 5 into an 8x8 square pan. Used a bit more than halve of the filling. Lots more pecans. Yummy! I thought I overcooked them, wasn't paying attention, but they are still so good! Tastes like a mock pecan pie.
These are the best.. I made two batches in one week. My family loved them. I tripled the recipe for a big cookie sheet.
This was good! I used more nuts than it called for and let it cool for at least 2 hours before cutting into squares.
My husband and mother loved these. I thought they were a bit too sweet and they got soggy very quickly. I think I didn't ensure the crust was pre-baked enough and will definately try this again. Thanks for a great recipe!
These were good. Be sure not too overcook the crust in the prebaking stage.
