  • Total Time: 1 hours 10 minutes



  • 3 C Flour
  • 1/2 C brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 C unsalted, cold butter


  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 C light corn syrup
  • 3/4 C white sugar
  • 3/4 C brown sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 C pecans, chopped


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Prepare the shortbread crust: In a large bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, and salt. Slice the cold butter into 1 inch cubes and cut into the dry ingredients. It will resemble small crumbs.
  3. Prepare a 11X15 baking dish. Make sure its something with at least 2 inch sides to prevent a sticky mess! Line the dish with parchment paper or foil.
  4. Press the crust mixture evenly into the bottom of the pan.
  5. Bake for 25 minutes.
  6. Prepare the Filling: in a bowl, combine the eggs, corn syrup, white and brown sugar, vanilla extract and the pecan pieces. Spread evenly over the baked crust. Fill in holes with additional pecan pieces.
  7. Bake for 45 minutes or until mixture is completely set and beginning to crack on top.
