Maple pecan pie bars are the perfect Fall dessert! You can't go wrong with a sticky maple blondie and a layer of pecan pie filling on top.
1Cup ButterUnsalted, Melted
3/4CupBrown Sugar Dark, Packed
1Egg Large + 1 Egg Yolk
Pecan Pie Layer
1/4Cup Dark Brown SugarPacked
2Tablespoons ButterUnsalted, Melted
Preheat your oven to 325F and grease and line an 8x8 baking pan with parchment paper. Make sure the parchment paper reaches over the sides of the pan.
Using a whisk and a large bowl, mix together the melted butter and brown sugar until well combined. Don't mix too quickly as you don't want to whip any air into the batter.
Switch to a rubber spatula and mix in the maple syrup, eggs, and vanilla.
Once smooth, fold in the salt and flour.
Pour the batter into your prepared pan and spread it even. Bake for 10 minutes.
Pecan Pie Layer
While the blondies bake, prepare the pecan layer. Chop up your pecans into small chunks then set aside.
In a medium sized bowl, mix together the sugar, corn syrup, egg, melted butter, salt, and vanilla.
Once combined, mix in the pecans.
After the 10 minutes is up, remove the blondies from the oven and evenly spoon the pecan batter on top. Do not pour it because this could cause it to sink into the middle.
Place the pan back into the oven and bake for another 15-18 minutes. You're looking for a golden top and when you shake the pan, it shouldn't jiggle.
Leave the pan out at room temperature for 30 minutes and then transfer to the fridge, uncovered, to cool completely. About 1 hour.
Once chilled, you can remove the bars from the pan and slice. To store, keep them in an air tight container and leave them out at room temperature or place in the fridge to keep them fresher for longer. Enjoy!
These bars freeze well for 1-2 months. Place in an airtight container to freeze.
