Pecan Pie Bars
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 sticks cold, unsalted butter, cubed
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 1/4 cups pecans, chopped
1 2/3 cups corn syrup
1 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup honey
6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) unsalted butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350º F and line a 9x13-inch baking dish with aluminum foil or parchment paper.
In a food processor or a large bowl, pulse together flour, sugar and salt (of crust ingredients) until combined.
Slowly add in cold butter and pulse until mixture is coarse and crumbly.
Turn dough out into lined baking dish and press it evenly into the bottom and around the edges.
Place in oven and bake for 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove and set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, corn syrup, sugar, honey, butter and vanilla extract.
Fold in pecans and mix so they’re thoroughly coated. Then pour over hot crust.
Return to oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until filling has set.
Remove and let cool completely before extracting aluminum foil from baking dish, cutting into bars and serving.
