Pecan Pie Brownies
From Cook's Country
The brownie batter in this “turtle” brownie recipe produces a bar delicious on its own, but sturdy enough to stand up to a quick caramel sauce laced with corn syrup and studded with nuts. Adding baking powder to this pecan pie brownie recipe lent them slightly cakey, very sturdy texture that didn’t crumble when sliced; unsweetened chocolate added the richest chocolate flavor. Ensuring that a toothpick inserted in the middle of the pan of brownies came out with some moist batter or crumbs attached indicated the brownies were baked perfectly; around the edges the toothpick should come out clean.

These brownies are moist and packed with chocolate flavor, but they won't crumble when you cut them. In fact, they hold up well enough to pack in a child's lunchbox or bring to a picnic or bake sale. They're pretty good at home, too, with a tall glass of milk. Sprinkling the nuts over the brownie batter (rather than folding them into the batter) ensures that they toast and become crisp in the oven. A quick caramel topping makes these brownies irresistable.
