Pecan Pie Bars

With some concern recently about high-fructose-corn-syrup, it’s worth noting that Crown Golden corn syrup does not contain such ingredient.

Pecan Pie Bars
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 45 minutes
Yield: 48 bars

CRUST:
• 2-1/2 cups flour
• 1 cup butter OR margarine, cut into pieces
