ingredients

directions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°.
  • For the crust, beat the butter and granulated sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, until light, approximately 3 minutes.
  • Add the eggs and the vanilla and mix well.
  • Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix the dry ingredients into the batter with the mixer on low speed until just combined.
  • Press the dough evenly into an ungreased 9" x 13" x 2" baking sheet, making an edge around the edge like you would a pie crust . It will be very sticky; sprinkle the dough and your hands lightly with flour. Bake for 15 minutes, until the crust is set but not browned. Allow to cool.
  • For the topping, combine the butter, corn syrup, and brown sugar in a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan. Cook over low heat until the butter is melted, using a wooden spoon to stir. Raise the heat and boil for 3 minutes. Remove from the heat. Stir in heavy cream and pecans.
  • Pour over the crust, trying not to get the filling between the crust and the pan. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until the filling is set. Remove from the oven and allow to cool. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate until cold. Cut into bars and serve.

    I followed the directions exactly or at least I think I did. The crust was to thick and I'm sure that's my issue as I'm not the best at pastries. They do have a wonderful flavor of pecans, but thinking next time I'd reduce the pecans to about 3/4 pound as it was so full of pecans I had trouble even mixing and the finished product was to heavy in pecans for what I was expecting. Other than that, great flavor and was enjoyed.
