Brown Sugar Bars

While cleaning out my grandma’s house with her, we found some really fun stuff! One of my most favorite things that we found aside from all the pictures, was my great grandmas cookbook! This recipe was in her handwriting and it was so good and so easy to make! You should give this a try!

1 1/3 cups flour
2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 stick of butter
2 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup chopped pecans

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift together flour, baking powder and salt.
2. Melt butter in a saucepan large enough to use as a mixing bowl.  Remove from heat and stir in brown sugar. Add the eggs and vanilla mix well.
3. Add in the remaining the ingredients. I stirred it with a rubber spatula until it was mixed in well. It’s an interesting consistency.
4. Spread into a 11×13 inch pan (I lined mine with tinfoil). Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
5. Cut into bars.
