Gooey Butter Pecan Bars

This recipe is popular with our entire family. It originated (in our family) with my husband's Aunt Ruby. She was a wonderful cook and a great hostess. These are very rich and gooey, which makes them great with coffee. I only make them around Christmas and we share them with our neighbors.
