Pecan Bars

I love all the recipes that I can make during the fall. Pecan bars are one of my favorites that my grandma made.

The recipe is easy to execute and the results are amazing. You will need a 9 x 13 pan, an electric hand mixer, and the following ingredients.

Crust:

In a large bowl, stir together 3 cups flour, 1/2 cup sugar, and 1/2 tsp salt. Cut in 1 cup of cold butter until mixure resembles coarse crumbs or the butter is smaller than the size of a pea. Press evenly into lightly greased pan. Bake at 350 degrees fro 20 minutes.

While the crust is baking, make the filling.

Filling:

In a large bowl, mix 4 eggs, 1 1/2 cup light white corn syrup, 1 cup white sugar, 1/2 cup light brown sugar, 3 tablespoons melted butter, 1 1/2 tsp vanilla, 2 1/2 cups chopped pecans. Pour mixture over crust and bake for 25 minutes and allow to cool completely on a wire rack. Cut and enjoy!
