~Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
~Line a 13×9 inch baking pan with parchment paper, making sure sides and bottom is covered (I make it extend over the sides, so I can pick it up from the pan easy once it’s baked).

~In a large mixing bowl, cream butter, brown sugar and salt until light and fluffy.
~Mix in flour, until well mixed.
~Press mixture evenly into the bottom of prepared pan.

~Remove from heat and stir in pecans and vanilla extract.
