Ingredients
Crust:
  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • ¼ cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
Filling:
  • 3 large eggs
  • ¾ cup light corn syrup
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1¾ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1½ cups pecans, coarsely chopped
Instructions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare one 13x9x2 inch oblong pan; lightly grease the pan with shortening.
Crust:
  1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine flour, butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Stir together until mixture is crumbly.
  2. Bake: Press mixture evenly into the baking pan. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until very lightly browned. Remove from oven.
Filling:
  1. Prepare filling while crust is baking. In a large mixing bowl, combine eggs, corn syrup, sugar, melted butter, and vanilla; using a wire whisk, whisk together until thoroughly mixed. Stir in chocolate chips and pecans.
  2. Bake: Pour filling into the still hot baked crust. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until filling is set and a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Leave cookie in the pan to cool; place baking pan on a wire cooling rack to cool. Cut into 2 inch bars.
Tip: My favorite tool to cut bar cookies is a stainless steel dough scraper; simply push the dough scraper straight down into the cookie for straight cuts. Or use a pizza cutter or small kitchen knife to cut the cookie into bars.
