  • Sift 1 1/2 cup flour with baking powder in a bowl. Cream margarine with 1/2 cup brown sugar in a separate large bowl, beating mixture until smooth. Stir flour mixture into creamed butter mixture and stir in 1/4 cup finely chopped pecans. Press the crust into the bottom of the prepared baking pan.

  • Bake crust in the preheated oven until hot, about 10 minutes.

  • Whisk eggs until foamy in a bowl; stir in dark corn syrup, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 3 tablespoons flour, salt, and vanilla extract. Whisk until the mixture is smoothly combined; pour over prebaked crust. Sprinkle with 3/4 cup pecans and return to oven.

  • Return to oven and bake until the topping is set, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool in the pan before cutting into bars.

This was good but like the other review there is something missing. Maybe more salt in the crust to off-set the sweet topping? And the crust maybe a bit too thick it seemed overwhelming. Small adjustments and this could be one heck of a dessert! Read More

something's not quite right with this recipe. the only thing I changed was I substituted butter for margarine which shouldn't have made a difference. It needs tweeking but I'm not sure exactly where.... I only say this because other reviewers will make this recipe and they need to know...mine came out dry and I only cooked them 22 minutes and I followed the recipe exactly. However having said that my husband and daughter really liked them so based on that I rated it a 4 Read More
