|Key words:||chocolate, pecan||Category:||Desserts|
1 1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened (See NOTE 1)
1 cup chopped pecans
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup corn syrup
2 Tablespoons butter, melted
1 Tablespoon bourbon, optional
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3 eggs, beaten
1 small bag (6 oz.) chocolate chips
|Preparation:||1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (325 is dark or nonstick pan). Beat flour, brown sugar, and butter for crust in large bowl. Press mixture onto the bottom and 1/2 inch up sides of a 13x9 ungreased pan. Bake 15-20 minutes until golden brown.
2. Stir remaining ingredients together for filling, until well mixed. Pour over baked crust.
3. Bake 30-35 minutes until set. Cool 15 minutes. Refrigerate 1 hour until firm. Store in fridge.
|Notes:||NOTE 1: (I found it necessary to use SLIGHTLY more
than this for the right consistency)
NOTE 2: (don't use more than an 8 oz. package of chips, I used 8 oz. and it was a little much. You may also want to add slightly more nuts, in my opinion)
