Ingredients

3/4 c
butter or margarine, softened
1 c
granulated sugar
1 c
light brown sugar, lightly packed
2
eggs, whipped
2 tsp
vanilla extract
1 1/4 c
all purpose flour
1/4 tsp
baking powder (no more than that!)
1 c
chopped pecans

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8 X 8 inch pan. In a medium sized bowl, cream together the softened butter and the white & lt. brown sugars. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour and pecans until just blended. Spread mixture evenly into the prepared pan.

Bake at 350 degrees 40-45 minutes. Edges should start to pull away from sides of the pan. Allow the pan to cool before cutting the bars (or cut into squares).

These freeze well, so make up a few batches and keep them in the freezer so you can have some at a moment's notice!

Bon Apetit' Y'all!
