Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Prepare an 8 X 8 baking pan by lining with parchment paper.
  • Place all of the ingredients for the cookie base or crust in a food processor and pulse a few times until the dough comes together. Press the dough into the prepared baking pan using your fingers, until you have an even layer. It can be a little annoying to work with the parchment paper sliding under your fingers, but you'll get there. Don't worry if the top isn't perfectly smooth-- you'll be pouring the topping over it.
  • Place the baking pan in the oven and bake the crust for 15 minutes.
  • While the crust is baking, make the topping by placing all ingredients except the pecans in a saucepan. Stir to help the sugar melt. Let the mixture reach a boil, continue to let it boil for a minute, then turn off the heat and add the pecans.
  • Pour the pecan topping evenly over the baked crust and return to the oven for 15 more minutes.
  • Remove the baking pan and cool it thoroughly on a rack. You can cut the bars at this point, or transfer the baking pan to a refrigerator and let it cool for at least a couple of hours before cutting.
