Sweet and crunchy gluten-free pecan pretzel pie bars have all the salty and sweet you need to make your taste buds tingle. Gooey, buttery, pecan pie filling gently poured over nutty pecans and salty gluten-free pretzels and a shortbread crust. That salty/sweet combo never gets old!
  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup corn syrup
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup gluten-free pretzels
  • 1 cup pecan halves
  • ½ recipe shortbread dough (omit the lemon zest and chocolate)
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Line an 8x8 baking dish with parchment paper, or generously greased aluminum foil.
  3. Press the shortbread dough on the bottom of the pan and bake for 15 minutes.
  4. Mix together all the ingredients except for pretzels and pecans until smooth.
  5. Sprinkle the pretzels and pecans over the par-baked shortbread crust and then pour the mixture evenly over the top.
  6. Bake for 35-45 minutes, or until the filling is set (does't jiggle too much when you give it a shake.)
  7. Let cool completely before cutting it into squares.
If you don't line the pan with parchment it will stick to the sides and will be difficult to remove the bars cleanly. I didn't use parchment, it was hard to get a clean slice. You'll thank me if you use parchment paper.
