Directions

1. Heat oven to 375*F 2. Line the bottom and sides of a 9"x13" baking pan with aluminum foil. 3. (For the crust) In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat 3/4 cup butter, brown sugar and salt until smooth and creamy. Add flour, and beat until coarse crumbs form. While the mixer is running, add 1-2 tablespoons of cold water, as needed to help form dough. 4. Press dough into the bottom and 1/2 inch up the sides of the prepared pan. Prick the dough with a fork several times, randomly around the pan. Bake 10-12 minutes or until light golden brown. 5. (For the filling) In a large bowl, mix eggs, brown sugar, corn syrup, vanilla, melted butter, bourbon and salt with a whisk until well blended. Stir in pecans and chocolate chips. Pour filling into baked crust. 6. Bake 20-30 minutes or until golden brown and filling is set. 7. Cool 1 hour, then set in the refrigerator to further cool. Cut into squares using a serrated knife, with a slight sawing motion, and clean the knife between cuts as needed, if you want nicely cut bars. Store covered, in the refrigerator. Serve cool, or at room temperature. Can be stored up to 3 days.
