Saucepan 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 the oven on to preheat, toast pecans for about 8-9 minutes. Remove and set aside.

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

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

Chop coarsely, and reserve.

Stir remaining ingredients into the egg mixture.

Beat until smooth.

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