Salted Pecan Squares, a festive foods rewind

During the next few days, I will share some delicious recipes that are perfect for the upcoming holiday gatherings that may occur at your home with family and friends. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

This recipe originally posted September 12, 2009.

This is a simple to prepare, very tasty cookie to throw together. It takes only one saucepan and the pan you bake in. So the clean up is easy too!


Salted Pecan Squares
350 degree oven

1/4 c butter
1 c brown sugar
1 egg
1 t baking powder
1 t vanilla
3/4 c flour
1 c pecan halves
sea salt grinder
Place pecan halves in a  7X11 pan, place in oven and turn oven on to preheat, toast pecans for about 8-9 minutes. Remove and set aside.

Melt butter in medium size saucepan, stir in brown sugar, set aside to cool.

Remove pecans from oven, empty onto cutting board to begin cooling. Set pan aside to cool.

Chop coarsely, and reserve.

Stir remaining ingredients into egg mixture.

Beat until smooth.

Pour batter into the same 7X11 pan (I sprayed with pan spray), smooth into corners of the pan.

Sprinkle chopped pecans evenly over top. Gently push them down into the batter. Carefully grind a small amount of sea salt over entire surface.

Bake 20 minutes. Let cool, cut into 24 pieces.
