Mrs. Carlton's Caramel Brownies

This recipe comes from a friend's 7th grade math teacher. You do the math on this one... double the recipe and make a 9x13-inch pan of Caramel Brownies. I find 8x8 or 9x9 recipes a complete waste of time... not enough bar cookies to justify the kitchen clean up!! Plus, my dear husband could eat an entire pan in one sitting!!! But, I've left the recipe up to you to decide your preference! Happy baking!!

Mrs. Carlton's Caramel Brownies
1 stick butter
1 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped toasted pecans

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Combine butter and sugar in a medium saucepan. Heat until butter and sugar melt, stirring continually. Stir in remaing ingredients. Beat well with a wooden spoon. Pour into a greased 8x8-inch baking pan. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until firm to the touch and lightly browned around the edges. Cool in pan. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Cut into squares.
