    I wish I would have looked at the comments before making this. The crust didn t set for me and the caramel remained too soft. I was able to kind of cuts bars after refrigerating it. I used foil backed parchment, it worked great. Next time I will precook the crust, and precook the caramel so it s thicker. What am I doing wrong? I have tried this recipe twice and my sister has tried it once and the crust just falls apart. That being said the pecan filling is just delicious. Help! I want this recipe to work out.
