brown sugar chewies...

1/4 cup butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg, beaten
3/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Confectioners' sugar, for dusting

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray an 8-inch square pan with cooking spray.
In a small saucepan, melt the butter. Turn off the heat, add the brown sugar and stir until smooth. Stir in the egg. Stir together the flour and baking powder and stir into the brown sugar mixture. Stir in the vanilla. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 20 minutes. When cool, dust the top with a sifting of confectioners' sugar.

The next time you need cookies in a hurry, give this one a try. The recipe comes from Paula Deen...and if you know her recipes very well, this one is on the light side..only calling for 1/4 cup butter. This recipe comes together quickly, and the dough is all done on the stove.
(bad, bad pics...!!)
