Stir together brown sugar and next 3 ingredients.
Stir together flour and next 2 ingredients; add to brown sugar mixture and stir until blended. Stir in apples and pecans. Pour mixture into a greased 13×9-inch pan; spread into an even layer.
Bake at 350 for 35 to 45 minutes or until wooden pick inserted comes out completely clean. Cool completely (about an hour). Cut into bars.
So, this is the magazine’s recipe (which is how I made it). I think next time, I might add 1 tablespoon of cinnamon to the flour mixture. It will just give it that extra something-something. I also highly recommend cooking them until that wooden pick is really clean. Mine were soooo yummy but they would have cut a little better if I would have cooked them about 4 minutes longer.
