What's the secret to our melt-in-your mouth, easy maple bourbon pecan bars? We start with a mix!
We served these, cut into bite-size pieces, at a recent family gathering and everyone wanted the recipe. I recommend getting more than one box!
We start our bars with a mix from Trader Joe's called Maple Pecan Shortbread Bar Mix. We add a half-cup of our own toasted pecans and substitute 2 Tablespoons of bourbon for part of the box recipe's 3 Tablespoons of water. Otherwise, follow the box directions. Below is our list of ingredients you'll need and few photos of the bars in progress.
They're best fresh, but will keep for several days (not that they'll last that long). If you're making them ahead, cut into serving portions and freeze in a well-sealed container.
