  1. Spray a 9″ x 13″ baking pan with cooking oil and line with parchment paper.
  2. Press crust into the pan on top of the parchment paper. Be sure to press all the way to the sides of the pan and into the corners.
  3. Beat eggs in a large mixing bowl.
  4. Add sugar and mix well.
  5. Add syrup and mix well.
  6. Add cream and mix very well.
  7. Add vanilla and rum and mix well.
  8. Stir in butter.
  9. Fold in pecan pieces.
  10. Pour into baking pan and bake at 350 degree oven for 55 – 60 minutes or until center is set and tester comes out clean. Do not over cook as the sides will start to caramelize and get hard.
  11. Remove from oven and cool to room temperature. Do not attempt to cut while it’s still hot or warm, it will fall apart.
  12. Freeze pan for at least 3 – 4 hours, or overnight.
  13. Cut into bars the size you want. I cut mine into 32 small bite size bars, but you can make your bars any size you want.
  14. Gently lift parchment paper out of the pan.
  15. Peel parchment paper as you lift each bar off. Place bars on your serving plate.
Recipe Notes

These bars, like regular pecan pies freeze very well and will keep for about 3 months. Don’t cut into bars if you are going to freeze it. Instead lift it out of the pan, cut in half crosswise, tightly wrap the halves in plastic cling wrap, then wrap foil over it and place them in a ziploc freezer bag.
