Ingredients
 

Crust:

  • 2 cups white or brown rice flour (You can also use all-purpose or whole wheat flour.)
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup cold butter

Filling:

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups pecan pieces
 
Instructions
 
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9X13 baking dish with cooking spray.
 
In a large bowl, stir together the flour, 1/3 cup sugar, and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in 2/3 cup butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle the mixture evenly over the prepared pan and press down firmly.
 
Bake for 20 minutes.
 
While the crust is baking, prepare the filling. In a large bowl mix together the eggs, corn syrup, 1/2 cup white sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 2 tablespoons butter, and vanilla until smooth. Stir in the chopped pecans. Spread the filling evenly over the crust as soon as it comes out of the oven.
 
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until set. If the top starts getting too browned cover with aluminum foil.
 
Allow to cool completely on a wire rack before cutting.
