My mom, Patty P called me to tell me about this recipe in the back of Country Living Magazine. She said it sounded so good I should try it. So I did. The recipe is simple, and I love McCormick. The end result was delicious.
1 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons McCormick® Cinnamon, Ground
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
1 tablespoon McCormick® Pure Vanilla Extract
1 cup coarsely chopped pecans
1 package (14 ounces) caramels, unwrapped
1/4 cup milk
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt in medium bowl. Set aside. Mix brown sugar, butter, eggs, vanilla and pecans in large bowl until well blended. Add flour mixture; mix well. Reserve 1 cup of the batter. Spread remaining batter into lightly greased foil-lined 13×9-inch baking pan. Bake 15 minutes or until firm.
- Microwave caramels and milk in microwavable bowl on HIGH 2 to 3 minutes or until caramels are completely melted, stirring after every minute. Cool 5 minutes or until slightly thickened. Pour over baked layer in pan, spreading to within 1/2 inch of edges. Drop reserved 1 cup batter by spoonfuls over caramel layer. Cut through batter with knife several times for marble effect.
- Bake 15 to 20 minutes longer or until center is set. Cool in pan on wire rack. Lift from pan. Cut into bars.
