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.
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.
