Graham Cracker Chewies

I have been making these squares since
the late 1980’s.  
I use to make them often, but haven’t made them in a few years.
I forgot just how good they are.
The flavour makes me think of Butter Tarts
but with texture. 
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.
1 1/3 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
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,
then cut into 16 squares.
