1 1/2cups sugar
7-- eggs, beaten
1/4cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted
2teaspoons vanilla extract, or 1 tablespoon whiskey
1 1/2cups chopped pecans


  1. For the Crust: Combine the sugar, flour, milk and butter in a bowl and mix well.  Pour into a 9×13-inch baking dish sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. For the Filling: Combine the corn syrup, sugar, eggs, butter, vanilla and pecans in a bowl and mix well.  Spoon over the crust batter.  Bake at 350F for 35 to 45 minutes or until the crust is brown and the filling is very softly set.  Serve warm.
