Pecan Pie Square Recipe

Today I’m excited to share with you a recipe that’s been a favorite of mine since I was a kid.  My mom used to make these all of the time when I was younger and now I enjoy making them for my family.

I’ve also got a little Christmas Treat Packaging tip to share with you… so keep reading until the end.

Pecan Pie Bars Recipe

Pecan Pie Bars

  • 2 C. flour
  • 1/2 C. powdered sugar
  • 1 C. cold butter
  • 1 (14oz) can Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 t. vanilla extract
  • 1 pkg. Heath Chips (you can use the Heath Chips with Chocolate if you can’t find plain Heath Chips)
  • 1 C. chopped Pecans

Preheat oven to 350° (325 for glass dish). In a food processor combine flour, sugar and butter. Pulse until crumbly.  Press firmly into the bottom of a 9×13 inch pan.  Bake 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, beat sweetened condensed milk, eggs and vanilla.  Stir in Heath chips and pecans.  Spread evenly over crust.  Bake 25-35 minutes or until golden brown and set.  Cut into bars. Store in the refrigerator.

I’ve got one last little tip for you!

A few years ago I ordered a custom stamp that said “Just for you from the Mortensons”.  It’s come in very handy packaging up our treats each Holiday!

Most times I just stamp it onto premade tags. Easy Peasy.    Stop by my blog sometime for more creative ideas!

Thanks to Rachel so much for having me!
