Another Cookie Recipe from BeverlyJean at Shabby Chic Pink Ladybug Designs

Southern Belle Bars

1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup butter softened
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup coarsely chopped pecans

3/4 cup dark corn syrup
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 eggs
3 tablespoons all purpurse flour
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup coarsely chopped pecans

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine 1 1/4 cups flour, butter and sugar in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until mixture resembles course crumbs. Stir in 1/4 cup pecans.
Press crust mixture evenly onto bottom of ungreased 8 or 9-inch square baking pan. Bake for 18 to 22 minutes or until very light golden brown on edges.
Meanwhile, combine all filling ingredients except pecans in small bowl, mix well. Stir in pecans. Spread evenly over hot, partially baked crust. Bake for 20 - 30 minutes or until filling appears set and knife inserted 1-inch from edge comes out clean. Cool completely, cut into bars.

Yummy!!!! I love this recipe, it's a mini version of "Southern Pecan Pie"...serve with a warm mug of Christmas Hot Chocolate topped with whipped cream sprinkled with nutmeg or cinnamin.....Oh! please add a Santa Candy Cane to stir the christmas Hot Chocolate and add a special peppermint flavor. Enjoy!!
