Pecan pie in bar form with a delicious shortbread crust. Yum! These are great for crowds or as neighbor treats because they make a whole jelly roll sheet full.
Delicious warmed up in the microwave with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Pecan Pie Bars
Andrea Wittwer and All Recipes
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups light corn syrup
1 1/2 cups white sugar
3 tablespoons margarine, melted
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups chopped pecans
1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease the sides and bottom of one 15x10 inch pan.
2.In a large bowl combine the flour, 1/2 cup sugar, margarine or butter and salt until the mixture resemble coarse crumbs. Press firmly into the prepared pan.
3.Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 20 minutes.
4.In a large bowl stir the eggs, corn syrup 1 1/2 cups white sugar, melted margarine and vanilla until blended. Stir in the chopped pecans.
5.Spread the filling evenly over the hot crust. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 25 minutes or until set. Let cool before slicing. Makes about 48 bars depending on how small they are cut.
*I think these are best eaten the day they are made.*
