Pecan Pie Bars

Recently, when I was surfing the web, I think it was Facebook, I came across a post for a bourbon cocktail that pictured this wonderful great dessert. When I went to the website, there wasn't a recipe for the bars. By the time I returned to the post there was about 5-6 requests for the recipe. So the site was being pressured into putting the link for the recipe. After a few changes, here is my version on this great cookie bar.

Pecan Pie Bars

Cookie Crust:

2 1/2 c. flour
2 sticks butter
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup pecans, chopped

Beat together until crumbly. Press in oiled jelly roll pan. Bake 20-23 minutes until golden.

Filling:
4 eggs
1 1/2 c. Karo, light or dark
1 1/2 c. sugar
3 tbsp. melted butter
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 1/2 c. pecans, halves or broken

Prepare and bake cookie crust.

Beat eggs, corn syrup, sugar, butter and vanilla until well blended. Stir in pecans. Pour over hot crust. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.

Makes 48 bars.
