Happy New Year from Moore Or Less Cooking! This is the first recipe on my blog for 2014! I am happy to post a very delicious and easy cookie bar to start the New Year off with sweet luck! Thinking that we were eating lots of delicious lucky foods for New Years Day, I thought that this Caramel Pecan Bar would be perfect, it tastes like a pecan pie in a bar. As soon as friends took their first bite, they asked if this was posted on my blog! So here you go! My new favorite Caramel Pecan bar! I wish you all a Happy Healthy Prosperous New Year 2014!



1 cup butter
2-1/4 cups packed brown sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 cups chopped pecans
Confectioner’s sugar, optional


In a large saucepan, combine butter and sugar over medium heat until sugar is dissolved.

In a small bowl, beat eggs and vanilla. Gradually add hot sugar mixture, stirring constantly.

Combine flour and baking powder; gradually add to the butter mixture and mix well.
Stir in pecans.

Spread into a greased 13 inch x 9 inch baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out with moist crumbs and edges are crisp. Cool on a wire rack.
Dust with confectioners sugar if desired. Cut into bars.

Yield 4 dozen.
