These gluten-free pecan pie shortbread bars help you ditch the time time consuming task of making gluten-free pie crust. This buttery shortbread crust takes just minutes to make. Once it is all prepared, it tastes almost exactly like traditional pecan pie.

Turns out, it was one of the best shortcuts I have ever made! Now I gladly offer to bring dessert to any holiday gathering.
Shortbread isn’t all created equal. Walkers Shortbread is hands down the best. Even their gluten-free is so incredible it is hard to tell that it doesn’t have the gluten.
