Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • For the crust, beat the butter and granulated sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, until light approximately 3 minutes.
  • Add the eggs and the vanilla and mix well.
  • Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • Mix the dry ingredients into the batter with the mixer on low speed until just combined.
  • Press the dough evenly into an ungreased 18 by 12 by 1-inch baking sheet, making an edge around the outside. It will be very sticky; sprinkle the dough and your hands lightly with flour.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, until the crust is set but not browned.
  • Allow to cool.
  • For the topping, combine the butter, honey, brown sugar, and zests in a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan. Cook over low heat until the butter is melted, using a wooden spoon to stir. Raise the heat and boil for 3 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  • Stir in the heavy cream and pecans. Pour over the crust, trying not to get the filling between the crust and the pan. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until the filling is set.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate until cold.
  • Cut into bars, dip one end in melted chocolate about one inch only and serve.

    This is great! Barefoot Contessa...Her cooking show is one of my favorites! I loved this recipe and printed out from the food network website, but I misplaced it before I could even try it which made me a bit grumpy I must say..LOL Well, now I can try it, thanks to you.
