Pecan Pie Bars

Here's a yummy-licious twist on pecan pie.  The consensus at my house was these bars taste like a yummy pecan roll.  Either way, they're delish! A lot of people have trouble making pie crust and these bars cut that step out with a simple cake mix.  Yay for being simple!  Enjoy :)

1 yellow cake mix
1/2 cup butter, melted
4 eggs (divided)
1 1/2 cups corn syrup
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2 cups coarsely chopped pecans

Combine cake mix, melted butter and 1 egg in large mixing bowl.  Beat on low speed until thoroughly mixed.  Reserve 2/3 cup of mixture for topping.  Press rest in greased 13 x 9 pan.  Bake at 325 degrees for 15-20, or until lightly browned and puffed.  Beat remaining 3 eggs, reserved cake mix mixture, corn syrup, sugar and vanilla on low speed until smooth and blended.  Stir in pecans.  Pour evenly over cruse.  Bake 40-45 minutes or until set.  Eat warm with ice cream or cool and cut in bars.
