Pecan Pie Bars

       Pecan Pie in Bar form is so much easier than making a traditional pie. When you have
        children you want things to be as simple as possible. I had my first slice of pecan pie
        when I was in Georgia and it was love ever since. I hope you enjoy this twist on a
                   Southern classic. Serve with a dollop of fresh whipped cream.
                                                                  Pecan Pie Bars

                                                                        Crust -

                                                                 1 3/4 cups all - purpose flour
                                                                 3/4 cups butter, room temperature
                                                                 1/3 cup sugar
                                                                 1/3 cup coarsely chopped pecans
