Mary Helen’s Brownies

One of my coworkers, Mary Helen, makes THE BEST BROWNIES EVER. Mine never come out as perfect as hers, but they're still really yummy and chewy. They're quick and easy to make. We just won't talk about how healthy they are(n't).

1 c. oil
2 c. sugar
1 tsp + vanilla
4 Tbsp corn syrup (Karo)
4 eggs
1 1/2 c. flour
Dash salt
4 rounded Tbsp cocoa
1 c. toasted pecans

Preheat oven to 325°. Mix above ingredients together. Line a 9 1/2" x 13" pan with foil (I uses Reynolds Release) or parchment, then sprinkle with white sugar. Bake approximately 35 minutes. Brownies will not be firm when done, but a toothpick should come out fairly clean.
Cool completely, then remove from pan with foil lining. Cut into 1" squares with a plastic knife (a trick I learned from Meredith at Like Merchant Ships). Enjoy...and share!
