Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 5 minutes
Servings: 12 bars



  • 1 Cup Unsalted Butter 2 Sticks at room temperature
  • 2 Cups All Purpose Flour
  • 2/3 Cup Sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1/8 Teaspoon Salt


  • 1 Cup Light Corn Syrup
  • ½ Cup Sugar
  • 3 Large Eggs Room temperature
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 3 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter Melted
  • 1 Cup Pecans Chopped


  • Start with making the dough. In a medium bowl cream the butter, sugar, salt and vanilla extract. Add the flour and mix until all combined.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Spray a baking sheet (11 ¾ x 9 1/4) with cooking spray. (See note) Press the dough mixture at the bottom of the pan evenly. Bake for 15-20 minutes.
  • While crust is baking make the filling. In a small bowl add the corn syrup, sugar, eggs, vanilla extract and melted butter. Stir until combined. Set aside.
  • Chop the pecans and add them to the bowl with the filling. Set aside.
  • When the crust is done baking pour the filling mixture on top. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the center has set. Rotate the pan half way through to make sure it evenly browns. (See note)
  • Once bars are done let them cool for about 15-20 minutes before cutting. Enjoy!!


  • I used a casserole foil pan you can also use a standard 9 x 13 cake pan. The cooking time may vary.
  • After 30 minutes in the oven watch it to see if it’s done it may only need 2-3 extra minutes. The cooking time will vary based on the size of the pan and your oven’s actual temperature.
  • These were even better the next day after sitting in the fridge overnight.
  • Store them in an air tight container for about 5-7 days in the fridge.
  • If you want to cut the bars smaller I recommend cutting them after they sat in the fridge for a few hours.
  • You can also add a drizzle of chocolate on top. That would make these even better.
