So, in this week’s Monday’s Mystery Recipe, I’m sharing Lethal Layers, from the book, Dying for Chocolate, by Diane Mott Davidson.
January 9th, 2012
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup dark brown sugar, packed
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup pecan halves
1 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract (I used vanilla bean paste)
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
(additional all-purpose flour - see directions below)
1 cup chocolate chips (I used Nestles semi-sweet) Mrs. Field's is recommended
Preheat oven to 375°. Combine the flour, brown sugar, and butter.
Spread pecans over cooled crust. (I added a few more than a cup, but probably less than an additional 1/4 cup.)
Place the salt and baking powder in the bottom of a 1/4 cup measuring cup. Fill the rest of the measuring cup with the flour. (This is the additional flour mentioned above.) Add to the egg and brown sugar mixture. Stir till well combined.
Pour mixture over the crust and sprinkle with chocolate chips.
