Millionaire Toffee Pecan Bars Recipe

A classic shortbread crust recipe topped with a chewy layer of toffee and crunchy pecans.


Yields 12 bars
1 cup (2 sticks) salted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 sticks salted butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
3 tablespoons maple syrup
1 cup chopped pecans


Preheat oven to 350F.

Cream the butter and sugar together on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3-5 minutes.

Add the flour and beat on low speed until crumbly, making sure not to over-mix the dough.

Press into the bottom of an 8 x 11-inch baking dish and cook for 18 to 20 minutes, or until light golden brown.

In a new bowl combine the butter, sugar, condensed milk, and maple syrup in a medium saucepan.

Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly.

Once the mixture is boiling, continue to stir until it is thick and golden brown (being careful not to burn) about 5-7 minutes.

Pour over the cooked shortbread.

Sprinkle with chopped pecans.

Allow to set in refrigerator overnight.
