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.
