Pecan Bars

Crust:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup unsalted butter, cold (10 2/3 Tablespoons)

Filling:

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 2/3 cups chopped pecans

Instructions:
1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9X13 baking dish with heavy foil and spray with cooking spray.

2.In a large bowl, stir together the flour, 1/3 cup sugar, and salt. With a hand held cheese grater, grate the hardened butter into flour mixture. With a spoon or your hands, mix until it resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle the mixture evenly over the prepared pan, and press in firmly.

3.Bake for 18-20 minutes in the preheated oven.

4.While the crust is baking, prepare the filling. In a large bowl mix together the eggs, corn syrup, 1/2 cup white sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 2 tablespoons margarine, and vanilla until smooth. Stir in the chopped pecans. Spread the filling evenly over the crust as soon as it comes out of the oven.

5.Bake for 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until set. I usually like things a little gooey but these you want cooked all the way through so make sure the middle is set. If the top starts getting to browned cover with aluminum foil.

6.Allow to cool completely on a wire rack before slicing into bars with a sharp knife.
