Ingredients

Nonstick spray

1 1/2 sticks (12 tablespoons) unsalted butter

2 1/4 cups light brown sugar

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

Pinch salt

3/4 cup pecans, chopped

2 large eggs

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

1 cup toffee pieces

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Adjust the racks to the center of the oven. Spray an 8-by-8-inch baking pan with nonstick spray.
  2. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan and stir in the brown sugar until melted together. Let cool for 5 minutes.
  3. While the mixture is cooling, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl.
  4. Toast the pecans in medium skillet over medium heat. Remove to a plate once toasted.
  5. Stir in the eggs, one at a time, and vanilla extract into the cooled sugar and butter mixture. Add the dry ingredients into the saucepan until combined. Fold in the toffee and chopped pecans; the batter will be very thick.
  6. Spread the mixture into the prepared pan. Bake until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 45 minutes. Cool for 15 minutes before slicing into squares.
