**Pecan Pie Bars**

We tried a new recipe for St Patty's Day dessert. Although it isn't green, it IS very tasty! I am not usually a huge pie fan, but if you are going to have pie, pecan is my favorite!

These pecan pie bars were very simple and a crowd pleaser!

Start off cutting your butter into the flour and sugar. Cut until crumbly.

Then dump it into your 13x9 and press it all around to  hit all sides etc
While it is baking, combine pecans, milk, eggs and lemon.
Here is the pretty brown crust after 15 mins at 350
Then pour your pecan mixture over the crust and bake another 24 minutes
When it comes out it will look something like this...
After a few minutes of cooling, cut it into bars and serve!

Or, as I always like to do, make yourself have to eat it with a fork by adding ice cream and caramel!
Now we are talking!

Pecan Pie Bars
2 C Flour
1/4 C brown sugar
1/2 C butter
1 1/2 C chopped pecans
1 can sweetened condensed milk
3 eggs beaten
2 tbs lemon juice

Preheat to 350. Combine flour and sugar; cut in butter till crumbly. Press onto bottom of ungreased pan. Bake 15 mins. Combine pecans, milk, eggs and lemon. Pour over crust. Bake 25 mins.

Happy Baking!
