Pecan Squares

Ingredients

    *Spoon & Sweep method: Use a spoon to fill measuring cup with flour until required amount is obtained. Scooping measuring cup directly into flour bag will firmly pack flour resulting in too much flour required for recipe.

    Directions

    Crust:

    1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
    2. Blend butter and confectioners sugar well. Add egg, salt and vanilla extract and blend until smooth. Add flour and mix until just combined.
    3. Reserve a generous tablespoon of dough and press remaining dough evenly into a pan measuring 10 x 15 inch, shaping up sides perfectly.
    4. Prick dough with a fork and bake until light golden. If any patchwork is required for sides or bottom, use reserved dough and place for 2 minutes in oven. (Make certain no holes larger than the ones created by the fork are visible. Otherwise, filling could seep between crust and pan)

    Filling:

    1. In a large bowl whisk eggs smooth. Add heavy cream and vanilla extract. Mix in brown and granulated sugar, flour and salt. Add pecans.
    2. Pour mixture into the prebaked crust and place in oven for 38-43 minutes or until center is set.
    3. Let cool before cutting.

    Ingredientes

    Para la masa:

    • 1 barra + 2 cucharadas de mantequilla sin sal, suave
    • 3/4 taza de Imperial Sugar Azúcar en Polvo Confeccionar
    • 1 huevo grande
    • 1/2 cucharadita de sal
    • 1 cucharadita de vainilla
    • 2 1/4 taza de harina multiuso (spoon and sweep method*)

    Para el relleno:

    *Método de cuchara y barrido: use una cuchara para llenar la taza de medir con harina hasta obtener la cantidad requerida. Si coloca la taza de medir directamente en la bolsa de harina, empacará la harina con firmeza y se necesitará demasiada harina para la receta.

    1. Caliente el horno a 350º F.
    2. Combine la mantequilla y la azúcar bien. Añada el huevo, la sal y la vainilla y mezcle hasta que quede suave. Añada la harina y mezcle hasta combinar.
    3. Reserve una cucharada grande de masa y apriete el resto de la masa en el fondo de un molde de 10 x 15 x 10 pulgadas, cubriendo los lados del molde.
    4. Usando un tenedor hágale agujeritos a la masa y hornéela hasta que dore. Si necesita remendar la masa, use la masa que reservo anteriormente y hornee por 2 minutos. (Asegúrese de que no hayan agujeritos visibles que sean más grandes de los que hacen los dientes del tenedor para que el relleno no se cuele entre la masa y el molde).

      Para el relleno:

      1. En un tazón grande bata los huevos. Añada la crema y la vainilla. Añada las azúcares, la harina y la sal. Añada las pacanas.
      2. Vierta la mezcla sobre la masa cocida y hornéela por 38 a 43 minutos o hasta que el centro esté firme.
      3. Déjelo enfriar completamente antes de cortar.
