In a mixing bowl combine softened butter, sugar and flour until light and fluffy. I like to use a hand mixer and begin on a low speed gradually adding more speed as the butter is mixed through. The mixture will be a fine crumble that will hold together when pressed but break apart easily. Hand stir coarsely chopped Pecans into mixture.
Crust mixture can be pressed into a 9×13 ungreased pan and baked in a preheat oven at 350F Degrees for 18-22 minutes
In a separate bowl prepare the filling by combining brown sugar, flour and salt together.
Hand mix Corn Syrup, eggs and vanilla paste until combined. Stir chopped pecans into mixture.
Spread filling mixture over partially cooked crust and bake an additional 30 minutes or until filling is set. Insert knife one inch from center to check. Knife should come out clean.
Allow to fully cool before cutting into bars
To make Crust:In a large bowl place ingredients of butter, flour and sugar. I like to use a hand mixer to blend ingredients. This will be a dry crumble mixture. Start by using a low speed to break up pieces of butter into smaller pieces. Gradually add speed until butter is small and ingredients resemble a crumble. Mixture will hold together when pressed in hand but easily break apart.
