If you like pecan pie, you will enjoy these easy Pecan Squares. They're sweet, sticky bar cookies with all the traditional flavors of pecan pie!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, butter and salt until the mixture turns into coarse crumbs. Press the crumbs firmly (and evenly) into a greased 15 x 10 x 1 inch baking pan. Bake crust at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Remove from oven when done.
While crust is baking, prepare the pecan filling: In a large bowl, combine the eggs, corn syrup, sugar, melted butter, and vanilla extract, until well combined. Stir in the chopped pecans. Spread the pecan filling evenly over the top of the baked (hot) crust.
Bake bars at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until they are "set" in the middle. Remove pan from oven and cool on a wire rack. Drizzle cooled bars with melted chocolate, if desired. Once bars are completely cooled, cut into 4 dozen bars, and serve!
Caloric calculation was made without the (optional) semi-sweet chocolate chips used for drizzling over finished bars.
