Susan brought these to our Enrichment. Another woman held on to Susan's glass footed cake plate because she wanted that recipe and wasn't taking the chance that whomever owned it would claim it without the first woman knowing. It was pretty funny, Susan may have thought her cake plate had walked off but then, all was well, and she was flattered.
Cream together in a bowl:
1 cup butter (soften but don’t melt)
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg yolk
1 tsp. vanilla
Stir together until “fluffy”
2 cups flour
¼ tsp. salt
Spray 9x13 cake pan. Spread dough on bottom, lightly with fingers, to within ½ to 1 inch of edge of pan.
Bake at 350º for 20 to 25 minutes until lightly brown and soft (don’t over bake)
Remove from oven and cover top with milk chocolate chips (doesn’t take quite all of one 12 oz. bag)
Let melt for a few minutes then spread with a knife over all the top. While still melted, sprinkle top with chopped pecans. Let cool. Enjoy.
