Pecan Pie Brownies

1 box Brownie mix

Pecan Pie Filling:
1 cup Sugar
1 1/2 cups Light Corn syrup
4 Eggs
1/4 cup Unsalted butter
1 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla extract
2 cups Pecans roughly chopped

Preheat oven according to brownie package


Combine the sugar, corn syrup, eggs, butter, and vanilla in a small saucepan

and cook over medium heat stirring often.

Mix brownies according to package instructions.

Pour brownie batter into a greased 13x9 inch pan and place in oven to

bake for 20 minutes.

* see note about cooking time below

As the brownies bake the filling in the saucepan should have thicken

enough to coat your spoon (about 15 minutes).


Stir the pecans into the mixture and continue to cook for 2-3 minutes

until the mixture reaches the consistency of runny oatmeal.


You want it to be loose enough to pour over the brownies but not liquid.

When the brownies have finished pre-baking remove them from the oven and pour

the pecan pie filling over them spreading it out to cover the brownies completely.

Place them back in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the filling only

jiggles slightly in the middle when you move the pan.

Let cool to room temperature before cutting
