1 ¼ c all-purpose flour
½ c plus 3 Tbls. Brown sugar, packed and divided
½ c butter
2 Tbls. Butter melted
½ c light corn syrup
1 tea. Vanilla extract
½ c chopped pecans or walnuts
Combine the flour with 3 T brown sugar. Cut in ½ c of butter until coarse crumbs form. (I microwave it until soft enough to work with).
Press into an 11×7 baking pan. I spray the pan with PAM. Bake at 375 degrees in preheated oven for 20 minutes.
While the crust is baking, beat eggs in a large bowl, and add the remaining brown sugar, melted butter, corn syrup and vanilla.
Blend in the pecans and pour mixture into the hot crust. Bake for 15 minutes. Cool and cut into squares. Makes 2 dozen.
