Butter Pecan Bars Recipe

Although it’s summertime and it’s hot outside and the humidity is high, I still love to bake cookies!

There’s just something about the aroma of baked goods that brings comfort to me.  And these Butter Pecan Bars are no exception!

This is an old recipe I started making way back when I was about 9 years old.  These bars are so good!  Rich, chewy, with a slightly crispy edge and sinfully delicious .  With a cup of coffee, you can’t go wrong.  I mean, even the name says a lot, Butter Pecan.  Two of my favorite things!

What’s not to love??

The recipe is super easy and doesn’t take long to prepare.  I have made these so many times, I could probably make them in my sleep! Give them a try!  You won’t be disappointed.
