That was the phrase lingering in my mind after I'd taken one bite, then another, then several more of these tender, buttery, caramel-y, nut-crunchy bars, just barely cool from my oven.
Honestly, they tasted like they'd come from a fine patisserie.
Let me show you.
Start by making the crust. Simply add butter to the mix, and beat until everything comes together.
Bake in a preheated 350°F oven for 20 minutes, until light brown around the edges. Remove the crust from the oven.
While the crust is baking, stir 4 large eggs into the jar of pecan pie filling.
Is this stuff is good as it looks?
Pour the filling atop the crust. Bake at 350°F for 40 to 45 minutes, until the edge is firm, and the center just barely jiggles when you shake the pan.
What did I say? Absolutely irresistible!
Want to make these right away, without a mix? We haven't tried this, but it makes sense that it would work: Press our shortbread recipe into a 9" x 13" pan. Bake as directed above, and top with your favorite pecan pie filling. Continue to bake until set.
