Lazy Pecan Pie Bars

Lazy Pecan Pie Bars are a delightful treat that’s easier to make than traditional pecan pie. Here’s a simple recipe for you:


For the crust:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar

For the filling:

  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup corn syrup (light or dark)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 1/2 cups pecan halves


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease or line a 9×9 inch baking dish with parchment paper, leaving an overhang for easy removal.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, melted butter, and brown sugar for the crust. Stir until well combined and crumbly.
  3. Press the crust mixture evenly into the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-18 minutes, or until lightly golden brown.
  4. While the crust is baking, prepare the filling. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the brown sugar, corn syrup, eggs, melted butter, vanilla extract, and salt until smooth.
  5. Once the crust is baked, remove it from the oven and sprinkle the pecan halves evenly over the hot crust.
  6. Pour the filling mixture over the pecans, ensuring they are evenly coated.
  7. Return the baking dish to the oven and bake for an additional 25-30 minutes, or until the filling is set and slightly golden brown on top.
  8. Remove the dish from the oven and let it cool completely in the pan on a wire rack.
  9. Once cooled, use the parchment paper overhang to lift the bars out of the pan. Transfer to a cutting board and slice into bars or squares.
  10. Serve and enjoy your delicious Lazy Pecan Pie Bars!

These bars are perfect for satisfying your pecan pie cravings with minimal effort. They’re great for potlucks, holiday gatherings, or just a sweet treat any day of the week.
