Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: 24 bars
For Crust:
  • 3 cups ginger thin crumbs
  • ¾ cup (1½ sticks) butter, at room temperature
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 2½ cups brown sugar
  • 4 extra-large eggs
  • ⅔ cup ginger thin crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup pecans, chopped
For Crust:
  1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, or in the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the ginger thin crumbs, butter, sugar and flour until moist and well-blended.
  3. Press the mixture firmly and evenly over the bottom of a 13- by 9-inch baking pan.
  4. Bake until the crust is golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes.
  1. While the crust is baking, in a large bowl, whisk together the brown sugar and eggs to blend. Whisk in the ginger thin crumbs, vanilla, salt and baking powder until well-blended. Stir in the pecans.
  2. Spread the mixture over the baked crust and return to the 350-degree oven until the filling is light-golden on top and jiggles slightly when tapped, 20 to 25 minutes. Transfer the pan to a cooling rack and cool completely.
  3. Cut into 24 bars. The bars can be made 1 day in advance. Wrap in plastic and keep at room temperature.
