Something Sweet!

I read about the recipe on Sweet Pea's blog and I thought wow that looks easy and yummy. I am not a huge cook, but I do enjoy making sweet things!

Makes 36
1 cup pecans or walnuts (I left out)
1 1/2 cups flour
1 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1 1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
4 t vanilla extract
1 cup white chocolate chips (I used two cups)

1.Adjust oven rack to middle position; heat oven to 350 degrees. Spread nuts on large rimmed baking sheet and bake until deep golden brown, 10 to 15 min. Transfer nuts to cutting board to cool; chop coarsely and set aside.

2. While nuts toast, cut 18" length foil and fold lengthwise to 8" width. Fit foil into length of 13 x 9 " baking pan, pushing it into corners and up sides of pan; allow excess to overhang pan edges.Cut 14" length foil and fit into width of baking pan in the same manner, perpendicular to first sheet. Spray foil-lined pan with nonstick cooking spray.

3. Whisk flour, baking powder, and salt together in medium bowl; set aside.

4. Whisk melted butter and brown sugar together in medium bowl until combined. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well. Using rubber spatula, fold dry ingredients into egg mixture until just combined; do not over mix. Fold in chocolate and nuts and turn batter into prepared pan, smoothing top with rubber spatula.

5. Bake until top is shiny, cracked, and light golden brown, 22 to 25 min; do not over bake. Cool on wire rack to room temperature. Remove bars from pan by lifting foil overhang and transfer to cutting board. Cut into 2" squares and serve.

Thanks for this recipe Sweet Pea.
