Pecan Pie Bars

As if pecan pie wasn’t enough, we had to go and make a bar cookie out of it! LOL

My favorite pie in the Universe is Pecan Pie. Being from the South, I’m sure that is not too surprising. So when I received 2 pounds of fresh Texas pecans from a local fundraiser, I knew that making a pecan pie would be on the menu. Pecan pies are already simple to make but when you transform it into a bar cookie recipe, there is no rolling out or trying to get the perfect pie crust. Just a beautiful shortbread style cookie base. Oh my gosh, Y’all. So good!1

Instructions
  1. Wash new potatoes and thinly slice. You can use a food processor attachment if you like, but we just used the handy kitchen chef knife at there were only 5 potatoes to slice. Try to get all of the slices equal in width so that they cook evenly.
  2. Rinse the potato slices in cold water and pat dry on a clean kitchen towel.
  3. Using a large heavy gauge sauce pan, add potatoes, milk, garlic and butter.
  4. Add spices and cook over medium heat making sure to stir often so that the milk does not stick to the pan. Bring to a boil for 7 minutes.
  5. Shred the fresh parmesan cheese using a regular cheese grater. Freshly grated cheeses seem to melt better than pre-packaged, pre-shredded kinds.
  6. Pour boiled potatoes mixture into a 9"x13" glass casserole pan that has been sprayed with non-stick spray. We used coconut oil spray.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees for about 35-40 minutes until it is bubbling and brown on top.
  8. Serve as a side dish to your favorite meatloaf, pork chops, or roasted chicken.
Recipe Notes

This Au Gratin is also wonderfully versatile enough to use with many other types of cheeses. Pick your favorite to substitute instead of the parmesan. Sharp Cheddar, Gruyere, Swiss...have fun experimenting. 😉
