  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Line a 9×13 pan {or a quarters baking sheet} with foil and spray foil with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, stir together the flour, brown sugar, and salt.
  • Cut in 1/2 cup butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. {I just use a fork.}
  • Press into prepared pan and bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven.
  • While the crust is baking, prepare the filling.
  • In a large bowl stir together the eggs, corn syrup, white sugar, butter, and vanilla just until combined. Stir in the chopped pecans.
