1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, and cinnamon. Cut in the 1/2 cup butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in pecans. Press into bottom of an ungreased 9x13" pan. Bake in a 350° for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan combine the 1/4 cup butter and chocolate; heat and stir over low heat until chocolate is melted. In a small mixing bowl combine the eggs, brown sugar, water and vanilla. Stir in chocolate mixture until well blended; pour over crust. Return to oven and bake 20 minutes more until set. Cool on a wire rack. Cut into bars. Makes 36.
