Pecan Pie Squares

Pecan Pie Squares
The weird crust!

Don't worry when you are baking the crust, this is what it looks like just out of the oven...It is still very dry so I take my spatula or the back of a spoon and sort of smooth out the cracks very lightly before I pour on the topping.

Pecan Pie Squares

3 cups flour
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons of sugar
3/4 cup margarine or butter, softened
3/4 tsp salt
filling(see below)

Heat oven to 350 °. Line jelly roll pan(15 1/2 x 10 1/2 x 1) with foil and spray with Pam or grease.
Beat flour, sugar, margarine and salt in large bowl on medium speed until crumbly(mixture will be very dry and will look like a cracked desert ground when cooked-no worry). Press firmly in pan. Bake until light golden brown, about 20 minutes. Prepare Filling. Pour over baked layer; spread evenly. Bake until filling is set, about 25 minutes; cool. Cut into 1 1/2 inch squares. Makes about 70 squares.


4 eggs, slighty beaten
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups Karo light or dark corn syrup
3 tablespoons margarine or butter, melted
1 1/2 tsps vanilla
2 1/2 cups chopped pecans

Mix all ingredients except pecans until will blended. Stir in pecans.

Tip: After these have cooled some, I lift the foil and goody out of the pan to finish cooling. I closely trim all the edges ("reject" parts go to the boys in the house LOL) and then cut the squares. This freezes well. Easiest to remove from foil with a metal spatula in sections and then separate.

Pin It!
