Quick Pecan Bars

Crust:
  • 1 c. all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 c. whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 c. dark brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 3/4 c. butter
Filling:
  • 1 c. dark brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 c. corn syrup
  • 1/4 c. butter, melted
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/4 c. pecans, chopped

To make the crust, combine the flours and brown sugar. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Press the mixture evenly into a greased 9 x 13-inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 17 minutes.

For the filling, combine the brown sugar and the remaining ingredients except the pecans, beating well. Stir in the pecans. Pour the filling over the prepared crust. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes or until firm. Let it cool, and cut into bars.
