Pecan Pie Bars

Yummy Scrummy Gooey and Good!

I’ve had several emails for the recipe for the Pecan Pie Bars --- so here you go! Maybe it’s time to practice on these so you can have them for Thanksgiving? Mmmmm!

Don't you just love the recipes that come from a buffet lunch with the girls? :cD

Crust
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 cup butter or margarine, softened

Bars
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups corn syrup (karo)
  • 2 1/2 cups pecan halves

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

  2. Prepare and bake Cookie Crust as follows: Spray 10 x 15-inch baking dish with non stick cooking spray.

  3. Beat the sugar, flour, salt and butter at medium speed until mix is fine crumbs.

  4. Press into pan.

  5. Bake 20 to 30 minutes or until light brown.

  6. While baking prepare filling as follows: Beat eggs, corn syrup, sugar, butter and vanilla until blended.

  7. Stir in pecans.

  8. Pour over hot crust.

  9. Bake 30 minutes.

  10. Cool and cut into squares.

Enjoy!

**Note** This recipe can easily be split in half, or made in two smaller containers rather than one large 10 X 15 pan!
