Recipe Ingredients for Bacon Salted Caramel Pecan Bars Recipe

8 tbsp salted butter
2/3 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup water
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 chopped bacon
3 cups toasted pecans

Recipe Directions for Bacon Salted Caramel Pecan Bars Recipe

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl or Kitchenaid, cream butter and sugar until light. Add egg and vanilla and beat for one minute. Add baking powder and flour(s) (and xanthan gum if preparing gluten-free) until everything is well mixed and has formed a cookie dough. Spray a 913 baking pan with non-stick spray. Press cookie dough mixture evenly throughout the bottom of the pan. Bake for 20 minutes or until the edges are golden brown (see picture below). Allow to cool.

  2. For the topping, combine water, sugar, and corn syrup in a large sauce pan or pot. Cook over medium-high heat stirring it occasionally until sugar is completely dissolved. When the sugar/water/corn syrup mixture begins to change to an amber like color (like a dark honey) immediately turn off heat. Carefully add vanilla and heavy cream stirring until smooth and looks like caramel sauce. Add toasted pecans and bacon stirring and coating everything. Spread bacon caramel pecan mixture over the cookie crust evenly. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight or until cold. Sprinkle with coarse sea salt sparingly and cut into bars/squares. Enjoy!!
