These Pecan bars are a great alternative to Pecan pie and you can make them into individual sized squares so everyone can enjoy. These, by far, are the best Pecan Bars I have ever made.
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup butter softened
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup coarsely chopped pecans
1 1/2 cups light corn syrup
2/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
4 Large eggs
6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped pecans
Step 1: Make the Crust
Preheat oven to 350.
Combine 1 3/4 cups flour, butter and sugar in a mixing bowl. Beat at a medium speed and scrape the sides often until the mixture looks like big crumbs.
Once thats done, stir in 1/3 cup of coarsely chopped pecans and mix well.
Press this crust mixture evenly into a ungreased 13x9 baking pan and bake this for around 18 minutes. Mine was 18 minutes exactly. The edges should be a light golden brown.
