  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar

For crust, in a large bowl combine flour, melted butter, the 2/3 cup finely chopped pecans, and the powdered sugar; mix well. Press mixture into the bottom of a 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until crust is set and light golden brown around the edges.
