1/4cupcold butter, cut into small pieces(half a stick)
1/2cupcorn syruplight or dark
2/3cupchopped pitted dates
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a 9 x 9 baking pan with parchment paper or foil and coat with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
To make the crust, in a bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, and salt. Add in the cubed cold butter and cut it into the dry ingredients using a pastry blender. (Alternately, you could pulse this in the food processor.) Press the crust into the prepared baking pan and bake for 10-12 minutes, until lightly browned. Set aside to cool.
Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees. Prepare the filling for the bars. Whisk together the corn syrup, maple syrup, brown sugar, eggs, flour, bourbon, vanilla, and salt in a large bowl. Stir in the chopped dates and pecans. Pour mixture over prepared crust and bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until set. Cool in pan for an hour before removing. Chill completely in the fridge before cutting.
Make ahead tip: You can prepare and refrigerate these bars up to 2 days in advance. Freeze in an airtight container for up to a month.
