These blondies are super easy to put together (one pot, one spoon, no mixer!) and my family thinks they're one of the best things they've EVER eaten!!
In a medium-size pot, over medium heat melt the one teaspoon of butter. Add the maple syrup (or honey) and pecans, and cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly until pecans take on a medium golden brown color. Sprinkle with the salt and transfer to a small bowl. Set aside.
Bake 25-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with clean or with just a few moist crumbs. Cool completely before cutting into rectangles, 2x1½-inches.
