  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9x 13 baking pan.
  • In a medium mixing bowl whisk together the flour, sugar and salt.
  • With a pastry cutter cut the butter into the flour mixture until you have pea size pieces of butter.
  • Dump the mixture into your 9x13 baking pan and press it down into an even layer. Place it in the oven for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  • While the cookie crust is in the oven prepare the easy pecan pie filling.
  • In a medium bowl whisk milk, eggs, brown sugar, corn syrup and vanilla together.
  • Once mixed well, stir in the pecans. Be sure to get everything mixed well.
  • When the cookie crust is done baking, spread the pecan mixture on top of it. Be sure to spread it evenly on the cookie crust.
  • Put the dish back into the oven for another 30-35 minutes. You will know it is done when the pecan topping no longer jiggles if you shake the dish.
  • Allow the pecan pie bars to cool then cut into bars.
