Ingredients

For the Crust:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup confectioner’s sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • 1 cup cold unsalted butter

For the Pecan Pie Topping:

  • 1 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 large egg slightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 8 ounce package Heath Bits O’Brickle Toffee Bits (English Toffee Bits)
  • 1 cup chopped pecans

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 350°F (325°F if using a glass dish) and spray a 9x13-inch baking pan with nonstick spray.
  • For the Crust:
  • In the bowl of a food processor, add the flour, sugar, and salts. Pulse 3 times to combine the ingredients.
  • Add the cold butter and pulse until the mixture is crumbly and the butter is just smaller than pea size.
  • Pour the flour/butter mixture into the prepared dish and press firmly down, being sure to get corners and edges.
  • Bake the crust 15 minutes and transfer from the oven.
  • For the Pecan Pie Topping:
  • While the crust is cooking, prepare the pecan pie topping.
  • In a medium bowl, beat together milk, egg and vanilla.
  • Stir in the chips and pecans; set aside until crust is ready.
  • When the crust is ready, give the pecan mixture a couple of stirs and slowly spread it evenly over the crust.
  • Bake the bars at 350°F for 25 minutes or until golden brown and set in the middle.
  • Set the bars on a cooling rack to cool, and after 10 minutes, slide a sharp, thin knife between the pan and the bars to loosen the sides. Allow the bars to cool completely before cutting into bars.
  • Store Pecan Pie Bars in an airtight container in the fridge. They will keep up to 3 weeks.
  • Enjoy!
