These Gooey Pecan Bars should come with a warning label. They are dangerously good! They are over-the-top good topped with vanilla ice cream!

These Gooey Pecan Bars start similar to Gooey Butter Cakes, but the topping is basically a pecan pie filling. I wrote the recipe to include cinnamon in the batter.
