Servings: 1

Preparation duration: 10 minutes

Cooking duration: 35 minutes

 

Ingredients:

about 1/4 cup salted caramel sauce (homemade or storebought), for drizzling

1 large egg

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/3 cup brown sugar, packed (light or dark)

1/3 cup maple or or pancake syrup (I used sugar-free lite pancake syrup)

1 cup pecans (I used raw, unsalted, whole pecans; use halves and pieces, salted and roasted, or your favorite type)

Crust

pinch salt, optional and to taste (consider omitting if nuts are well-salted)

1/2 cup unsalted butter, very soft

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Equipment:

aluminum foil

pastry cutter

baking pan

spatula

bowl

oven

paper towels

whisk

frying pan

oven mitt

wire rack

Cooking instruction summary:

Preheat oven to 35oF. Line an 8-by-8-inch baking pan with aluminum foil, spray with cooking spray; set aside. Don't skip lining the pan with foilbecause bars are sticky and lining the pan will save lots of cleanup time and elbow grease. Crust - To a large bowl, add the flour, brown sugar, and cut in the butter using two forks or a pastry cutter.Keep working until butter is evenly distributed and pea-sized lumps and sandy bits form. The softer the butter is, the quicker and easier itis. Turn mixture out into prepared pan and hardpack it with a spatula or hands to form a smooth, even crust.Bake for 17 to 18 minutes, or until crust is just set. Don't overbake because pan is going back into the oven after filling is added. While crust bakes,prepare the filling. Filling - To a large bowl (same one used for crust is fine; just wipe it with a paper towel), add the egg, brown sugar, maple syrup, vanilla, optional salt, and whisk until combined. Stir in the pecans; set aside until crust is done baking. After crust has baked, gently and carefully pour filling over crust (give filling one last quick stir before pouring it), smoothing the pecans with a spatula or use your fingers to evenly distribute them. Make sure they're not clustered in one area and they're as flatas possible because edges or corners that are jutting up will be prone to burning. Bake for about 16 to 19 minutes, or until center is set and not jiggly. Use an oven mitt to shake the pan gently starting at about 16 minutes, and use your judgment from there; bars will set up more as they cool. Place pan on a wire rack to cool for at least 1 hour before drizzling with salted caramel, slicing, and serving. Bars will keep airtight at room temperature for up to 5 days,or in the freezer for up to 6 months.

Dynamite is made with peanuts.

Food Joke

There was an old man whose family could no longer afford to take care of him. So the family decided that a nusring for the aged would be appropriate. Of course the old man rejected the idea, but no sooner he was convinced that it was the right thing to do. On his first day at the home, he spent most of his time laying in bed reflecting on life, feeling lonely. A while later, an orderly stopped by to seee how the old man's first day was going. "How you doing today?", she said to the old man, "First day I see". The Old man replied with a nod. In no time the two began talking up a storm. As the conversation began to drag on, the orderly was eyeing the room filled with fresh flowers, cards and balloons from friends and relatives. She noticed a bowl full of peanuts sitting on top of the table next to the bed, and help herself to a handful. As the two continued to converse with each other, the orderly kept eating more helpings of the peanuts. She look at her watch and noticed that nearly 2 hours had passed and said, "My goodness, the time has gone by quickly. I have to tend to other people here too." "That's okay.", said the old man, "I feel so much better being able to talk to someone." Looking into the bowl the orderly said, "I feel awful! I ate almost all of your peanuts!" The old man responded, "That's okay. Ever since I got these false teeth, all I could do was suck the chocolate off of them anyhow."
