Pecan Squares

Pecan pie is one of my favorite desserts. This favorite recipe is almost as good as pie. The best thing about bars is that you can cut them small and sample them all!


  • 3 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup light or dark corn syrup
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups pecans, chopped


In a large mixing bowl blend together flour, 1 1/2 cup sugar, 1 cup butter and salt until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press firmly and evenly into a greased 15x10x1 inch baking pan. Bake @ 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Meanwhile in another bowl combine eggs, syrup, sugar, melted butter and vanilla. Stir in pecans. Spread evenly over hot crust. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until set. Cool and cut into bars.
