Graham Cracker Chewies

These are amazingly good and simple to make. They are a nice alternative to brownies.

Recipe from the Nantucket Open House Cookbook.

2 tablespoons all purpose flour


1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/3 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs beaten

Preheat oven to 350°

Prepare the crust:
Mix the graham cracker crumbs, sugar, butter and flour in a mixing bowl
until moist and crumbly. Press the mixture firmly and evenly in the
bottom of a 9 inch square baking pan. Bake until lightly browned,
about 20 minutes.

Prepare topping:
Stir all the ingredients together until blended. Spread the topping
over the baked crust and bake for 20 minutes. Let cool completely,
