Pecan Pie Bars

6 c. all-purpose flour
1 1/2 c. sugar
1 t. salt
2 c. cold butter (no substitutes)
8 eggs
3 c. sugar
3 c. corn syrup
1/2 c. butter, melted
3 t. vanilla extract
5 c. chopped pecans

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar and salt. Cut in butter until crumbly. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of two greased 15 inch x 10 inch x 1 inch baking pans. Bake at 350* for 18-22 minutes or until crust edges are beginning to brown and bottom is set.

For filling, combine the eggs, sugar, corn syrup, butter and vanilla in a large bowl; mix well. Stir in pecans. Pour over crust. Bake 25-30 minutes longer or until edges are firm and center is almost set. Cool on wire racks. Cut into bars. Refrigerate until serving.
Yield: 6-8 dozen
