Pecan (or Walnut) Bars

by Marsha M.

These pecan or walnut bars taste like chewy praline brownies. You might eat the whole pan at one sitting and throw healthy right out the window. Oh well, enjoy!

1/4 c. butter, 3/4 c. brown sugar, 1 egg, 3/4 c. flour, 1 tsp. baking powder, 1/2 tsp. vanilla, 1/2 c. chopped pecans or chopped walnuts.

Heat oven to 350. Spray 8×8 baking pan with cooking spray. Melt butter and add sugar. Cool. Stir in egg. Combine flour and baking powder and stir into egg mixture. Add vanilla and nuts. Bake 20 minutes. (Don’t over bake.) Cut into squares when cool and store covered in an airtight container.

  1. Thanks very much for this recipe, Marsha! These sound totally “decadent” – in a good way. Which is exactly what we need sometimes. (Yes, and I agree that sometimes we have to throw healthy out the window, if we at all can — that’s why I decided to do a Forum for dessert recipes!) I can seen these being a really great recipe for the holidays! Or parties.
