Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F (176 C) and line a 9×13-inch pan. (You were suppose to put either foil or parchement on the bottom but I forgot, but it wasnt too hard to pull out the pecan pie slabs after it cooled and I cut it up)Crust
  1. To make the crust start by creaming together the butter and brown sugar until fluffy in a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Add in the flour and salt and mix until crumbly.Pecan Pie SlabPecan Pie SlabPecan Pie SlabPecan Pie Slab

Topping

  1. While the crust bakes, prepare the filling by combining the butter, brown sugar, honey and heavy cream in a saucepan and stirring it over medium heat. Simmer the mixture for 1 minute, then stir in the chopped pecans.Pecan Pie Slab

  5. Use the foil overhang to lift out the bars and transfer them to a cutting board. Peel off the foil, slice into bars and serve. ( I used a pizza cutter and cut the pecan pie slab into abstract shapes and pulled them out of the pan. I liked the rustic feel of it more than equally sized slices).
