In a medium saucepan, bring the brown sugar and 1/3 cup of butter to a boil. Immediately remove and pour in the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle the cranberries and pecans over the sugar mixture. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and ¾ cup of sugar until light and fluffy, then beat in the eggs one at a time. Then stir in the vanilla, and beat in the dry ingredients mixture alternating with the sour cream. When the batter is fully mixed, pour it into the pan.
