10 lbs. Baker’s Request™ White Cake Mix  
2 lbs. 8 oz. Butter/Margarine (Chilled)   
2 oz. Vanilla     
6-12 oz. Milk

Mix Baker’s Request™ White Cake Mix, Butter/Margarine, Vanilla and Milk with a paddle until the ingredients form a cookie dough-like texture. (approximately 3 minutes in 2nd speed on a 3-speed mixer).  Sheet or pin dough approximately ¼” thick.  Place in a greased foil pan.  Dough should cover the sides of the pan.

Par-bake crust for 10 minutes.  Cool to room temperature.  Place pecan pie base in mixing bowl.  Add half of the water and mix with wire whip until uniform. Scrape bowl.  Add remaining water slowly, then mix 4 minutes in 1st speed on a 3-speed mixer.  Pour pecan pie batter over pecan pieces. Pecan pieces will float to top. Immediately place in oven.

Bake at 360°F for a revolving tray oven, 340° F for a rack oven, for 30-45 minutes. Pecan pie filling should be firm when baking is complete. Spread or drizzle Select™ Caramel Glossy or Spred ‘N Gloss™ Icing over top of cooled bars. Chill bars prior to cutting.
