Fudge Pecan Layer Bars
With an electric mixer, cream together the 1/2 cup butter, brown sugar, egg and vanilla. At low speed, add the flour, baking soda and salt, blending well. Then gradually add the oatmeal and 1/4 cup chopped pecans. Reserve 2/3 cup of the mixture and set aside. Press the remaining mixture into the prepared pan in an even layer.
In a small saucepan, combine the chocolate chips, 1 tablespoon butter, condensed milk and salt. Stir, over low heat, until chocolate is melted and mixture is well combined. Remove from heat, and add the 1/2 cup chopped pecans and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Spread fudge mixture over the oatmeal layer. Crumble the 2/3 cup reserved mixture over the fudge layer.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes until lightly browned. Cool, and cut into bars or squares.
