Pecan Bars - America's Test Kitchen
90 mins (prep 20, cooking 70)
11 ingredients
16 servings
These are absolutely outstanding--by far the best pecan bars I've ever tried. I used white whole wheat flour for the crust and, since I didn't have dark rum, used golden rum. I also used Smart Balance's 50-50 Baking Blend to avoid some of the cholesterol. Even with all these substitutions, they were outstanding to the point that I'll never make any other pecan bar. Cooking time does not include 2 hrs. to cool after baking.
