Do you love Pecan Pie, but a whole pie or even just a slice, seems like too much? Then this recipe is perfect for you. It has all the flavors that we know and love, but the portion is just right to satisfy that craving.

1 1/2 cup flour
1 stick unsalted butter
1/4 cup sugar

1 cup corn syrup, light or dark
1/3 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
2 eggs
3 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup pecans, coarsely chopped
pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 350°
In a food processor combine 1 1/2 cups flour, butter, and sugar
pulse until butter is completely combined
press crust mixture evenly into the bottom of an ungreased 9 x 13 inch baking pan
bake 18-22 minutes, or until golden brown

Meanwhile, mix all the filling ingredients, but the nuts, until fully combined
stir in pecans
spread over hot, partially baked crust
bake 20 – 30 minutes until the filling appears set
insert a knife 1 inch from the edge to see if it comes out clean

Cool completely and cut into bars

#persimmons are plentiful this time of year. 'What to do with them?' is always the question. I'm considering apple & persimmon #handpies a #smallbatch #audreycancook It's going to be a #smallbatch #thanksgiving this year. #audreycancook #indigo dyed #shibori pillows
#audreycancook Another #leftover creation, skillet #appletart, a #smallbatch #audreycancook Skillet chicken #enchiladas a #smallbatch.  A great recipe for clearing out the fridge. On the blog soon. #audreycancook I've been working on a recipe for #icecream made without a machine. They're all over the web. I'm still not convinced, it's overly sweet and the texture is like frozen mousse. #audreycancook
