Love this variation of pecan pie.
And the fact that it sits on a shortbread type crust is a bonus. Love me some shortbread.
I added just enough dark chocolate chips that they didn't show up in every bite but just enough for that added extra something special. Totally optional.
PECAN PIE BARS
1 1/4 cups flour
5 tbsp butter, cubed
1/4 cup sugar
Pinch of salt
1 1/4 cups corn syrup
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
3 eggs, lightly beaten
3 tbsp butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
1 3/4 cup pecan, chopped
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips, optional
Heat oven to 350*
Combine crust ingredients in a food processor and pulse until course crumbs. (Butter can also be cut into flour, sugar and salt mixture with a pastry cutter). Press evenly into a lightly sprayed 9 x 13 baking dish. Bake 14-18 minutes or until very lightly browned.
Mix together all filling ingredients except pecans and chocolate until combined. Stir in pecans and chocolate chips; pour on to baked crust.
Bake 25-30 minutes or until set. Cool. Cut into squares and serve.
