For the Crust

  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup + 2 TBS sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter softened
  • 3/4 tsp salt

For the Filling

  • 4 eggs slightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups light or dark corn syrup
  • 3 TBS butter melted
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups chopped pecans


  • Heat the oven to 350 degrees and grease your jelly roll pan.
  • Beat flour, sugar, butter and salt in a large bowl until crumbly (mixture will be dry) and then press firmly into the bottom of your pan.
  • Bake until light, golden brown, usually about 20 minutes.
  • While crust bakes, prepare your filling by mixing all your remaining ingredients (except pecans) until well blended.
  • Stir in pecans.
  • Pour filling over your baked layer and spread evenly.
  • Bake until filling is set, or about 25 minutes.
  • Once cool, cut into small squares and serve. Recipe yields about 70 bars.


*For high altitude decrease sugar to 1 1/4 cups and corn syrup to 1 cup.
