I love the small and taste of any type of baked apple goodies. This is a variation on apple cake which is thinner like a brownie. If you want a more butterscotch flavor, substitute the two cups of dark brown sugar for the light brown and white sugar.
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup white granulated sugar
1 cup butter, melted
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 cups of apples, peeled and chopped
1. Preheat oven to 350º. Bake pecans in a single layer in a shallow pan 8 to 10 minutes or until toasted and fragrant, stirring halfway through.
2. Stir together sugar and next 3 ingredients.
3. Stir together flour and next 3 ingredients; add to brown sugar mixture, and stir until blended. Stir in apples and pecans. Pour mixture into a greased and floured 13- x 9-inch pan; spread in an even layer.
4. Bake at 350º for 35 to 45 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely (about 1 hour). Cut into bars.
