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

Dulce de Leche Turtles Cups

Dulce de leche

Dulce de Leche Turtles Cups. These little cuties really need zero introduction. My family loves it when I make them. And fight over who will get to eat the last one. I learned how to make them years ago while helping to cater an event with my brother (I was in charge of the dessert). I recall that as I was making these delightful treats, one of the guests was standing around and watching me in the kitchen. He literally ate them as I made them, he enjoyed them so much. Once you learn how to make your own dulce de leche, you will make these all of the time too!

How to make Dulce de Leche:

After the dulce de leche is completely cooled, spoon a teaspoon full into these adorable mini fillo cups. We used the Athens brand.

Then, using  a double boiler or microwave, melt dark chocolate. Spoon over the top of the dulce de leche fillo cups. Add a whole pecan. Chill in the fridge until set.
