I have one more pecan pie(plus a little something else!) recipe that I am going to try out this weekend....and hopefully share with you. In the meantime, you can make the Pecan Pie Bars and freeze them until you need them. As always....................Enjoy!!
Pecan Pie Bars
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup butter, cut up
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup butter
4 large eggs, lightly beaten
2 1/2 cups finely chopped pecans
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Combine flour, sugar, and salt in large bowl; cut in 3/4 cup butter thoroughly with a pastry blender until mixture resembles very fine crumbs. Press mixture evenly into a greased 13" x 9" pan, using a piece of plastic wrap to press crumb mixture firmly in pan. Bake at 350° for 17 to 20 minutes, or until lightly browned.
Combine brown sugar, corn syrup, and 1/2 cup butter in a saucepan; bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring gently. Remove from heat. Stir one-fourth of hot mixture into beaten eggs; add to remaining hot mixture. Stir in pecans and vanilla. Pour filling over crust. Bake at 350° for 34 to 35 minutes or until set. Cool completely in pan on a wire rack, about 2-3 hours. Cut into bars.
