These gluten-free pecan pie shortbread bars are truly decadent in every way. They are rich and buttery.
Nobody would ever know this fall dessert is gluten-free. Take classic pecan pie flavors and put them in a more mobile treat that won’t be lacking any of the classic taste.
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.
This year I was tasked with the responsibility to make pecan pie for our family dinner. I absolutely adore shortbread so I thought maybe I could save myself time and use it as the crust. 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.
We have a tradition in our house where we eat pie for breakfast the day after Thanksgiving. This has been our tradition as long as I can remember.
