Pear Note on MacBreak Weekly

MacBreak Weekly

Pear Note is Leo Laporte’s pick of the week on this week’s MacBreak Weekly! Thanks very much to Leo for the kind words about Pear Note, and for being such a great tech journalist. Leo actually helped lead me down the Mac path back when he was the host of The Screen Savers, and I still enjoy listening to him today on shows like MacBreak Weekly.

Since Leo gave away my secret weapon to get his attention, I figure I should share the recipe with the world. These are one of my favorite treats, and Leo’s family evidently liked them as well. So, here is the recipe:

South Carolina Chewies

1 pound box dark brown sugar
1 stick butter or margarine
3 eggs
1½ cups flour
1½ tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. salt
1 cup chopped nuts
1 tsp. vanilla
Powdered sugar

Cream sugar and butter. Add eggs and sifted flour, baking powder and salt. Add vanilla and nuts and mix well. Pour into greased pan. Bake in 9×13 pan for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and cut into squares.

If you bake this in a 9×13 pan, the chewies will be kind of thick. If you want them smaller, use a jellyroll pan or cookie sheet. They will be thinner.
