  • For crust, in a medium bowl stir together flour, powdered sugar, and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in the 1/2 cup butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Pat crumb mixture into the prepared baking pan. Bake for 20 minutes or until light brown.

  • Meanwhile, for filling, in a medium bowl stir together eggs, pecans, brown sugar, corn syrup, the 2 tablespoons melted butter, and the vanilla. Pour over the baked crust, spreading evenly. Bake about 20 minutes more or until the filling is set. Cool completely in pan on a wire rack.

  • Use foil to lift uncut bars out of pan. Transfer to a cutting board; cut into bars.

To Make Ahead:

Place bars in a single layer in an airtight container; cover. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
