Nuts of any kind are typically a controversial topic among my taste testers (and don’t even get them started on coconut…that can incite a riot)…so, I’m always hesitant when I offer them a dish where nuts are involved.
That being said, they devoured these Pecan Pie Neiman Marcus Bars. Devoured them. Even people who typically don’t eat my nutty treats were eating these babies. This Thanksgiving, you could bring a Pecan Pie…or a Pecan Pie Bar…both equally delicious and simple to make.
1 box of yellow cake mix
1 stick melted butter
1 box of powdered sugar (about 4 cups)
8 oz package of cream cheese, softened
2 cups of pecan pieces
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease (I use Pam) one 9×13 inch pan.
In a mixing bowl, combine cake mix, 2 eggs and melted butter. Spread in bottom of pan as your “crust”.
In a second bowl, beat with electric mixer, powdered sugar, 2 more eggs, and cream cheese. Stir in your pecan pieces. Spread mixture on top of crust mixture.
Bake 35-40 minutes until edges are brown and center set (it will still be slightly wobbly in the middle).
