INGREDIENTS

    For the crust:

    • 3/4 cup (170g) Butter, softened
    • 1 3/4 cups (220g) Flour
    • 1/3 cup (67g) Sugar
    • 1/4 teaspoon Salt

    For the filling:

    • 1½ cups (495g) Corn syrup, light or golden
    • 4 Eggs
    • 2/3 cup (133g) Brown sugar, dark or light
    • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
    • 2 teaspoons Vanilla extract
    • 2 cups Pecans, chopped
DIRECTIONS

  1. Make the crust: Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 9×13 (22*23cm) baking dish with foil and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl or in a bowl of a stand mixer, mix butter, sugar, flour and salt. Beat until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Press the mixture evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan.
  4. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until the edges are lightly golden. Meanwhile make the filling.
  5. Make pecan pie filling: in a large bowl whisk corn syrup, eggs, salt and vanilla extract, whisk until combined. Add pecans and stir.
  6. Pour the batter on top of the crust and bake for 30-35 minutes.
  7. Allow to cool completely, then refrigerate until set before cutting into bars.

    Can these be made ahead of time and frozen?

    Can I cook it without corn syrup, or what can use instead of it

    These look fantastic. Can I add bourbon and chocolate chips? If so, how much of each? Thank you!

    Pecan pie bars were delicious but my filling was runny in the middle of my pan even after they were cooled and refrigerated. Any suggestions?
