Lime Bars with Pecan Crust

These are just like the lemon bars I posted last month but made with limes.  My grandson AJ just loves both of them.  He usually eats most of the ones I make.  This is such a quick easy recipe and can be ready in no time.
For the crust:
1/2 cup pecans
4 tablespoons (2 ounces) unsalted butter, melted
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup light brown sugar
3 eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
2 teaspoons lime zest
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
16-25 pecan halves, toasted (see note)

For topping
Preheat oven to 325F. Butter an 8-inch square pan.
In a food processor  (or by hand), finely chop the pecans. Add the melted butter, flour and brown sugar and process until well combined. Press the mixture evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes until the crust is golden brown.

Meanwhile, whisk together the eggs and sugar in a medium bowl. Whisk in the lime juice and zest and the flour and whisk until smooth.
Pour the filling over the still hot crust. Return to the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the filling is set. Cool in the pan for 1 hour before cutting into squares. Top each square with a pecan half and press down lightly.
Thanks for taking time from you busy day to stop by, have a wonderful Day and Remember to Find the Time to Do ALL the things YOU Love.
