Chewy Pecan Bars Recipe

A friend from Texas gave me this recipe years ago. Because it's so easy to make, I've relied on it quite often.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 30 min. + cooling YIELD:36 servings


  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 4 eggs

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups chopped pecans
  • Confectioners' sugar


  • 1. Spread butter evenly in an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. In a large bowl, beat eggs, brown sugar and vanilla until blended. Combine flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to egg mixture until well blended. Stir in pecans.
