Pecan Pie Bars (holiday baking #3!)

My 3rd holiday baking recipe! Have you checked out my  previous ones?

These are always a classic at Christmas. Always so tasty. They’re good hot, and they are good cold – basically any time of the day they are delicious.

The gooeyness in the middle, but also with the shortbread on the bottom… makes such a great combo.
