1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 Tbs. all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cups pecans, chopped
1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease bottom of 13×9-inch baking pan.
2. In a large bowl, stir all Crust ingredients until dough forms. Press dough in bottom of pan using floured fingers. Bake 20 minutes at 350°F.
3. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, stir all Pecan Filling ingredients until well blended. Pour over hot crust.
4. Bake 15 minutes or until center is set. Cool completely, about 2 hours. For bars, cut into 9 rows by 4 rows. Store covered in refrigerator.
These are so damn good they should be illegal, honestly.
