1/4 cup coarsely chopped pecans
3/4 cup dark corn syrup
1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3 T all-purpose flour
1 tsp vanilla

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