These rich, creamy bars are a snap to make. Follow the related technique for Making Bar Cookies with a Crust, to cut them into neat triangles.


  • For Crust:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup cold butter or margarine
  • For Filling:
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 2 tablespoons half and half or light cream
  • 1 teaspoon instant coffee crystals
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the flour, powdered sugar and salt. Cut in the butter or margarine till crumbly. Press the mixture evenly into the bottom of a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan. Bake in a preheated 350 degrees F oven for 10 minutes.

In another mixing bowl, beat the eggs slightly. Stir in the brown sugar, pecans, honey and melted butter or margarine. In another bowl, stir the half-and-half or light cream, coffee crystals and vanilla together till the coffee crystals dissolve. Stir into the pecan mixture. Spread the mixture evenly over the hot crust.

Bake in the 350 degrees F oven for 20 minutes more, or till set. Cool in pan on a rack. Cut into squares, then halve squares diagonally to make triangles.
