INGREDIENTS
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup liquid honey
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 eggs lightly whisked
2 cups pecan halves
Shortbread Crust:
1/2 cup unsalted butter softened
1/3 cup icing sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
pinch salt

METHOD
Shortbread Crust: In a large bowl, beat butter with icing sugar until fluffy; beat in vanilla. In a separate bowl, whisk flour with salt; stir into butter mixture in 2 additions. Press into bottom of parchment paper–lined 9-inch (2.5 L) square cake pan; prick all over with a fork. Bake in 350?F (180?C) oven until edges are lightly golden, about 14 minutes. Let cool slightly.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat; whisk in brown sugar until smooth, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat; whisk in honey, vinegar, vanilla, and salt. Whisk in eggs.

Sprinkle pecans over crust; pour egg mixture over top. Bake on a baking sheet in 350?F (180?C) oven until egg mixture is set, 50 to 55 minutes. Let cool completely in pan; cover and refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour. Lift out onto cutting board; using a serrated knife, cut into squares. (Make-ahead: Layer between waxed paper in airtight container; refrigerate for up to 5 days.)
