This Pecan Pie bar recipe is a fun take on a traditional pecan pie and a crowd favorite!
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.
Back when I was a kid, my Mom used to bake up a storm for the Holidays. Most of the time the treats were for “other people” but these Pecan Pie bars were always something that I got to “sample”. My mom would cut the squares out of the pan and I’d get to eat the slivers of pie left around the edges. I looked forward to it every year!
Now as an adult I love to make these bars. I have a few friends that BEG for me to bring them to our parties.

I’ve got one last gift-giving tip for you!
A few years ago I ordered a custom stamp that said: “Just for you from the Mortenson’s”. It’s come in very handy packaging up our treats each Holiday!
Most times I just stamp it onto premade tags. Easy Peasy.
