Pecan Bars

Recipe and picture from My Recipes

2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup powdered sugar
3/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup honey
2/3 cup butter
3 tablespoons whipping cream
3 1/2 cups coarsely chopped pecans

Sift together 2 cups flour and 2/3 cup powdered sugar.
Cut in 3/4 cup softened butter using a pastry blender or
fork just until mixture resembles coarse meal. Pat mixture
on bottom and 1 1/2 inches up sides of a lightly greased
13- x 9-inch baking dish. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes or
until edges are lightly browned. Cool.
Bring brown sugar, honey, 2/3 cup butter, and whipping
cream to a boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir
in pecans, and pour hot filling into prepared crust.
Bake at 350° for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden and
bubbly. Cool completely before cutting into 2-inch squares.
