These Pilgrim Chipmunks have been quite patient waiting for me to post the recipe for Pecan Pie Bars. They look ready to dig in. So be quick to get your bite. 
Pecan Pie Bars
Imagine the same taste of pecan pie in a bite sized bar! These bars have a tender shortbread crust. Pure bliss :)
Crust Ingredients:
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon or 1/2 tsp. apple pie spice
  • 3/4 cup cold butter
Filling Ingredients:
  • 1-1/2 cups dark corn syrup
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 6 TB. flour
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1-1/2 cups chopped pecans
Crust Directions:
  • In a food processor pulse all crust ingredients until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Press into a 13 x 9 greased pan.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 18 minutes. 
Filling directions:
  • Combine all filling ingredients except pecans and mix well. 
  • Stir in pecans and spread evenly over hot partially baked crust. 
  • Bake about 20 minutes or until filling is set.
Store asparagus like cut flowers.Cut the stems, place in water, throw a plastic bag over ‘em and refrigerate. They’ll stay crisp for a week or longer, and you can use this trick on cilantro and parsley as well.
