Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan.
  2. 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.
  3. Bake crust in the preheated oven until hot, about 10 minutes.
  4. 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.
  5. Return to oven and bake until the topping is set, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool in the pan before cutting into bars.
  6. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

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 (so sorry Debbie seriously nothing personal and if you can help me out I'd appreciate it) 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
