Pecan Pie Bars
Pre-heat oven to 350
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup packed brown sugar ( I used Dark)
1/2 cup light colored corn syrup
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla
1. For crust, in a medium bowl combine flour, powdered sugar & salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in the 1/2 butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Pat crumb mixture into an ungreased 11 x 7 x 1-1/2 inch baking pan ( I used a 9 x 13)
Bake about 20 minutes or until light brown.
2. Meanwhile, for filling, in a medium bowl stir together eggs,pecans,brown sugar,corn syrup, melted butter and the vanilla. Pour over the baked crust, spreading evenly
3. Bake about 20 minutes more or until the filling is set. Cool in pan.
I lined my pan with foil with the foil extending a couple inches beyond the pan edge for easier removal - also I cut back on the baking time because of the larger pan I used - approx 16 minutes.
