Pecan Pie Brownies {recipe}


Ahhh…November. The start of so many great holidays and get togethers with friends and family! This month I hope to share with you some dishes that will be worthy of taking to your holiday festivities (or share with your small family at your house).

This week is a yummy treat that reminds me of Thanksgiving in a way. It combines the deliciousness of a store-bought brownie mix with the holiday favorite…pecan pie!

Pecan Pie Brownies

1 package brownie mix and ingredients listed on the box (Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Brownie Mix)
1/4 cup melted butter
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 Tbsp flour
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
2 cups pecans, chopped

Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease a 9×9-inch pan (if you have an 8×8-inch pan, you will have to adjust cooking times).

Mix together brownies according to package directions. Spread in 9×9-inch pan.

Whisk together melted butter, brown sugar, flour, corn syrup, vanilla and eggs. Stir in chopped pecans.

Carefully spoon pecan pie mixture over uncooked brownies.

Bake 30-35 minutes (if you have an 8×8-inch pan, check at 40 minutes, could take as long as 50 or 55 minutes. If the top or edges start to get brown, cover edges with aluminum foil to prevent further browning and burning).

Cool and cut into 12 or 16 squares.
