Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease an 20cm square baking tin.
In a medium bowl, cream together the butter, dark brown soft sugar and caster sugar. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour and pecans until just blended. Spread the mixture evenly into the prepared tin.
Bake for 35 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges begin to pull away from the sides of the tin. Allow to cool in the tin before cutting into squares.
Had no trouble making it, but when it came to getting it out of the tin, it just stuck to the bottom. Am now going to have to bin this batch and try again tomorrow!
Update; used parchment paper to line the tray instead, but it fell apart when I took it out. Completely give up now. - 02 Mar 2011
