As a youngster (too many years ago), the dessert I yearned for most of all was my grandma’s pecan bars. The juicy, sweet, and nutty taste of them raised the bar (bar… get it?) for all other sweet dishes in my life. I hope she’d be proud of the fact that I’ve taken some creative steps and transitioned this recipe so it not only lifts the bar (yes … again) on a culinary level but also in a more spiritual sense.
For the crust:
2½ cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
⅔ cup confectioners’ sugar
½ teaspoon salt
For the filling:
1½ cups light brown sugar, packed
5 tbsp cannabutter
3 tbsp unsalted butter
½ cup honey
2 tbsp heavy cream
1 lb pecans, coarsely chopped
