  • 1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled to room temperature
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup pecans



  1. Step 1
    Preheat oven to 375 degrees and prepare an 8 X 8 square pan by lining with parchment paper and spraying with cooking spray.

  2. Step 2
    In a food processor, add the pecans and pulse until they become coarse crumbs.

  3. Step 3
    Make the crust by whisking together in a medium bowl, the flour, brown sugar, pecan crumbs, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Add the melted butter. The dough will be crumbly but make sure all of the butter is incorporated.

  4. Step 4
    Reserve 3/4 cup of the crust and press the remaining into the bottom of your 8 X 8 prepared baking pan.

  5. Step 5
    For the sour cream filling, in a large bowl, mix together the sour cream, sugar, 1 Tbsp flour, egg and vanilla. Pour over the crust in your pan.

  6. Step 6
    Spoon your fruit filling over the sour cream and gently swirl into sour cream filling with a spoon.

  7. Step 7
    Sprinkle your reserved 3/4 cup crust over the top and bake for 25 - 28 minutes or until golden brown.

  8. Step 8
    Cool completely and cut into squares to serve. Store in refrigerator up to 3 days.

    Kind of bland, yet a nice change to overly sweet desserts. I used strawberry filling.
