Pecan Pie Slabs
Prep: 25 minutes Bake: 40 minutes
Oven: 350 F
1 1/4 cups all- purpose flour
½ cup powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
½ cup butter
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 cup chopped pecans
½ cup packed brown sugar
½ cup light corn syrup
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla

1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Line an 11x7x1/2 - inch baking pa with foil, extending foil over the edges of the pan; set pan aside.
2. For crust, in a medium bowl stir together flour, powdered sugar, and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in the ½ cup butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Pat crumb mixture into the prepared baking pan. Bake for 20 minutes or until light brown.
3. Meanwhile, for filling, in a medium bowl stir together eggs, pecans, brown sugar, corn syrup, the 2 teaspoons melted butter, and the vanilla. Pour over the baked crust, spreading evenly. Bake for 20 minutes more or until the filling is set. Cool completely in pan on a wire rack.
4. Use foil to lift uncut bars out of pan. Transfer to a cutting board; cut into bars.*
Makes 24 bars.
* I use a plastic serated knife to cut these desserts as well as cutting brownies into squares. The plastic knife will not scratch your pan, and will not tear the edges.
