Pecan Pie Bars
From: Dolores Reborn


2 cups all purpose flour
½ cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
¾ cup butter, cut up
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
½ cup butter
4 large eggs or 5 medium lightly beaten
2 ½ cups chopped pecans
1 tsp vanilla extract

Combine flour, sugar and salt in large mixing bowl. Cut in ¾ cup of butter thoroughly w/ pastry blender until mixture resembles very fine crumbs. Using a piece of plastic wrap, press mixture evenly into a greased 13 X 9 inch pan. Bake at 350 for 17 – 20 minutes or until lightly brown.

Combine brown sugar, corn syrup and ½ cup butter in saucepan. Bring to boil over medium heat stirring gently. Remove from heat. Stir slowly ¼ of hot mixture into beaten eggs; add to remaining hot mixture. Stir in pecans and vanilla. Pour filling over crust. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 – 35 minutes or until set. Cool completely in the pan on a wire rack. Cut into bars yield about 16 large bars.
