Pecan Pie Bars

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/2 cup cold butter, cut into cubes
3/4 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/4 cup light corn syrup
2 large eggs
2 tsp real vanilla extract
2 tbsp all-purpose flour
1/8 tsp salt

Line 9-inch square metal cake pan with parchment paper.

Preheat oven to 350F.

Form crust by mix flour with brown sugar in a large bowl. With pastry blender (or two forks), cut in butter until mixture is moist and crumbly (it should resemble coarse, wet sand). Press firmly into pan and bake on the center rack of the oven for 10 minutes. Sprinkle with pecans and press lightly; bake for 5 additional minutes.

While the crust is baking, make the topping/filling by beating butter, sugar and corn syrup in a medium until smooth; and eggs and vanilla, beat to combine. Stir in flour and salt and pour over hot base. Bake until darkened and still slightly wiggly when the pan is moved, about 20 minutes. Let cool on rack. Cut into 25 bars.

Serves: Approximately 12.
