1/4 cup packed light brown sugar

1 cup chopped pecans

1 stick salted butter, melted

2 8-ounce packages cream cheese, softened

1 cup granulated sugar

3 large eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla or almond extract

Fresh berries and mint leaves, for garnish


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Combine the flour, brown sugar, pecans and butter in a bowl. Mix until a dough forms. Press into an ungreased 9-by-13-inch baking dish and bake until lightly browned, 12 to 15 minutes.
