Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Grease bottom and sides of 13x9-inch pan with shortening or cooking spray (do not use dark pan).
  • 2
    In medium bowl, beat 1 cup butter and 1 cup brown sugar with electric mixer on low speed until creamy. Stir in flour. Press evenly in pan.
  • 3
    Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until edges are golden brown and center springs back when touched lightly.
  • 4
    Meanwhile, in medium bowl, mix all filling ingredients except pecans. Stir in pecans. Pour over crust, spreading pecans evenly.
  • 5
    Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until filling is set. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
  • 6
    In small bowl, mix icing ingredients (add additional rum or water, 1/2 teaspoon at a time, if icing is too thick to drizzle). Drizzle icing over bars. For bars, cut into 8 rows by 4 rows.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Create triangles by cutting each bar diagonally in half.
  • tip 2
    To keep bars longer, wrap tightly, label and freeze up to six months.
