Saucepan Salted Pecan Squares

This is a simple, tasty cookie to throw together. It takes 1 saucepan and the pan you bake in. So the clean up is easy.

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 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 7X11 pan (I sprayed with Pam), 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.
