Accidental Pecan Bars

12 ingredients

We were making pecan pie for Thanksgiving and my mom thought she needed to double the filling like she always does with frostings, etc. When the pie crust overflowed and there was still filling in the bowl, she was going to throw it out, but I decided to try a crumble-type crust to use it up. We had our pie, so we figured we would send the bars with our grandson/nephew to be with his other family. The bars came out so good that we did not want to share, but we stuck with the holiday spirit, shared, and made many more throughout the season! The cream in the filling is optional, but definitely worth it.
