Pecan Pie Bar Recipe



Crust:
2 cups flour
1/3 cup white sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup unsalted butter, cold
(You can also use refrigerated pie crust dough in a pinch)

Topping for unbaked crust:

2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
mix both together set aside

Filling:
3 eggs
1 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1- 2/3 cups coarsely chopped pecans

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Line a brownie pan with parchment paper. I also oil spray it since this is a sticky bar.

In a large bowl beat together flour, 1/3 cup sugar, and salt. Cut in 2/3 cup butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press this mixture evenly into the prepared pan, and press in firmly. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture.

Bake for 15 minutes.

In a large bowl beat together the eggs, corn syrup, 1/2 cup white sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 2 tablespoons butter, and vanilla until smooth. Stir in the chopped pecans. Pour the filling evenly over the crust as soon as it comes out of the oven. Bake for 25-30 minutes until browned and set.



Cool completely before slicing into bars.

I need to make it up to my son that I did not serve Pecan Pie in Thanksgiving (I thought 2 pies for 7 people was enough) so will be surprising him with this!
