You Have to Try These!

I wanted something sweet the other night so I thought I would try this recipe that I saw Paula Deen make.  It was really easy and very yummy!  Eat them warm with a scoop of ice cream.

Brown Sugar Chewies


confectioners’ sugar for dusting
1/4   chopped pecans
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1   beaten egg
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup butter


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8-inch square pan with vegetable oil cooking spray.

In a small saucepan, melt the butter.  Turn off the heat, add the brown sugar and stir until smooth.  Stir in the egg.  Stir together the flour and baking powder and stir into the brown sugar mixture.  Add the vanilla and pecans.  Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 20 minutes.  When cool, dust the top with a sifting of confectioners’ sugar.
