Yummy, yummy get in my tummy! This week we have a delicious, easy, nutty treat to share with you — Spiked Pecan Bars. This dessert was piglet approved, and if you frequent our blog, you know that is a high mark for us!!! Spiked Pecan Bars will need to be on your dessert table over the Thanksgiving holiday. Do you have sweet nibblers in your family? You know, the people who say that they aren’t going to have dessert or they want to have a small taste of several desserts? Spiked Pecan Bars would be a perfect dessert for your family.
To make Spiked Pecan Bars you will need to create a crust with flour, butter, powdered sugar and salt. Prep the crust in a food processor and form into the bottom of a 9 x 13 baking dish. Placing parchment paper in the bottom of the pan prior to adding the crust dough, helps with getting the bars out of the pan after baking. The crust needs to bake for about 20 minutes.
While the crust is baking you can prep the filling. For the filling you need eggs, corn syrup, brown sugar, honey, flour, butter, cinnamon, salt, ginger and coarsely chopped pecans and of course, a little of your favorite whiskey. This recipe is so easy. You simply dump all of these ingredients together, mix them up, pour the mixture over the crust, and bake.
After baking cool the pan for about an hour before cutting into two inch square bites. This treat would be especially great with a dollop of whipped cream on the top!
