  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Line 8-inch square pan with foil, allowing some to hang over edges of pan. Grease bottom and sides of foil-lined pan with shortening or cooking spray. Press brownies evenly in pan.

    Bake 20 to 22 minutes or until toothpick inserted 2 inches from side of pan comes out almost clean. Cool completely in pan on cooling rack, about 1 hour.

    Meanwhile, in 1-quart saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Beat in brown sugar, whipping cream, egg and salt with whisk until well blended. Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture begins to boil and is thickened. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla and pecans. Set aside to cool.
