Firstly, Happy New Year to you all! Hope you have all had an amazing Christmas and holiday break. Over here at BBH, we are starting as we mean to go on – by eating! These little slices of pecan pie heaven are EVERYTHING. My mum even said they were the best things I’ve made – big statement coming from my biggest critic. You only need one bowl and a whisk and it’s super easy to throw in the oven!
There’s a soft, buttery shortbread base topped with a melt-in-the-mouth maple caramel filling packed to the brim with sweet pecans. The slices are pretty heavy so you only need a tiny bit to satisfy all your pecan pie cravings. I added an optional extra layer of coconut caramel spread and desiccated coconut in between the base and the filling – it just added to the indulgence. If you can’t get hold of this spread, you can use any spread you like to make the bars more exciting – try peanut/almond butter, cookie butter or even Nutella for a super decadent treat.
