3 cups all-purpose flour
½ cup white sugar
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup margarine
4 large eggs eggs
1 ½ cups light corn syrup
1 ½ cups white sugar
3 tablespoons margarine, melted
1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
2 ½ cups chopped pecans
Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 10×15 inch jellyroll pan.
Step 2: In a large bowl, stir together the flour, 1/2 cup sugar, and salt. Cut in 1 cup of margarine until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle the mixture evenly over the prepared pan, and press in firmly.
Step 3: Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven.
Step 4: While the crust is baking, prepare the filling. In a large bowl mix together the eggs, corn syrup, 1 1/2 cups sugar, 3 tablespoons margarine, and vanilla until smooth. Stir in the chopped pecans. Spread the filling evenly over the crust as soon as it comes out of the oven.
Step 5: Bake for 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until set. Allow to cool completely on a wire rack before slicing into bars.
