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.
Thanks! you mention both light and dark corn syrup in the ingredient lists. I wasn't sure which to use. My mom will love these!!
Corrected. Thank you.
is the corn syrup light or dark for the filling? and does it matter? these do look delish! :)
Hey Hippie kitties, <br> <br>Thanks for the comment. I used light corn syrup as I think it gives it a nicer look. I have never tried dark but Im sure it would taste just as great. Please try them. They are very good. :)
