Pecan Chewies

recipe adapted from Southern Bite

1 cup butter (2 sticks), melted

1 cup sugar

1 cup brown sugar

2 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

2 cups pecan halves, roughly chopped (yields about 1 1/2 cups pecan pieces)

Cream together butter, sugar, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla with an electric mixer at medium speed until smooth and creamy (about 1 minute).

Sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture and mix until just combined and smooth (about 1 minute). Stir in pecans.

Spray a 13x9 baking pan with cooking spray. Spread batter evenly into pan and bake at 300 degrees for 40 minutes or until set in the middle and golden brown.

Cut into squares and store in an airtight container once cooled.
