Butter Pecan Bars

These came from AcraMax.com. They are really good & quick!


2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 and 1/3 cup flour
1 and 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
2/3 cup pecans, chopped

Combine all ingredients and mix well. Pour into a greased 13 x 9-inch-baking pan and bake for 20 - 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Allow to cool and cut into bars.

The Skinny: Use your favorite egg and sugar substitutes. These bars will be pretty dense. If you want to lighten them up a little and make them more cake-like, add 1/2 tsp. of baking powder.

Yeah, but anything with cream cheese is great in my book!

They both sound good. The first one looks easy to cut in half to put in an 8-inch pan to sample it.
