Look at those gooey squares of goodness, just look at them!  YUM!  Butter, brown sugar, toffee bits – what more could a person want?  These little bites of heaven are courtesy of the Food Network.

1 1/2 sticks (12 tablespoons) butter

2 1/4 cups packed brown sugar

2 cups flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

pinch of salt

3/4 cup pecans, chopped

2 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla

1 cup toffee bits

1  Preheat oven to 350. Spray 8″ square baking dish with cooking spray and line bottom and sides with parchment paper. Spray parchment with cooking spray.

2 Melt butter over medium heat; add brown sugar and stir until melted. Let cool 5 minutes.

3  Meanwhile, whisk flour, baking powder and salt together. Toast pecans in a medium skillet over medium heat, 6 – 8 minutes.

4  Stir eggs, one at a time, into cooled butter-sugar mixture, then stir in vanilla. Add flour mixture and stir until combined. Fold in toffee and pecans (batter will be thick).

5 Spread batter in dish. Bake until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, about 45 minutes. Let cool 15 minutes, lift out of pan and cut into pieces.
