If you don’t love chopping with a chef’s knife, a food chopper or a food processor can make it happen very quickly.
When the pecan pie bars come out of the oven, they shouldn’t be jiggly but they might still move slightly, but it should jiggle uniformly. As the bars cool, they will firm up and be easy to eat.
If you choose to split up the bars into two 8×8 pans, watch the bake time as they won’t need to cook as long.
