Spread pecans evenly over the bottom of a greased 10x15x1” baking pan.
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.
Crema together the butter and sugar. Add the eggs and vanilla. Beat well.
Add the flour and salt. Blend well.
Spoon the batter over the pecans. Dampen your hands and gently press to spread the dough evenly over the pecans.
Sprinkle the chopped fruit over the batter. Press down on the fruit slightly so it pushes gently into the dough.
Bake in the preheated oven for 50-55 minutes.
Once the bars are cooled, prepare a powdered sugar glaze.
Whisk together the powdered sugar, vanilla and 3 tablespoons of heavy cream. If needed, add additional heavy cream until the glaze is at drizzling consistency.
Drizzle the glaze over the cooled bars.
Sprinkle with chopped pecans, if desired.
Cut the bars and store in an airtight container.
