A very delicious blondie packed full of roasted pecans.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Take chopped pecans, or pecan halves, and pulse in food processor until they are very fine. Spread them out on a cookie sheet and roast for 8-10 minutes, just until they are fragrant.
In a large mixing bowl, add sugar, butter, and salt. Whisk to combine. Whisk in eggs one at a time until incorporated. Add flour, and whisk until just combined. Add vanilla and pecans, mix until incorporated.
Place mixture in a greased 9x13 inch pan. Place pecan halves on top of each 2x2 inch square. Bake at 350 degrees F until bars pass the toothpick test.

Oh this sounds so good! (11/18/2009)
Thank you so much for this recipe. Someone just gave me a lot of pecans. They are in my freezer, all shelled, just waiting for a recipe. This sounds really good. I especially love the idea of the grated, roasted pecans because we have people who can't eat the whole pecans because of dental problems this year. So pecan pie was out. Thanks. They can eat these.
