I was looking for something new to make for dessert last week. Of course it had to be simple (as most all of my cooking is done with a 3 year old and 12 mo. old underfoot). These yummy bars fit the bill!!
They're sort of like pecan pie with a shortbread crust. The "brickle chips" give them a yummy taste.
Brickle Pecan Squares
(recipe is from Southern Living)
2 cups flour
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 cup butter cut up
1 (14ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (7.5 ounce) package almond brikcle chips
1 cup chopped pecans
combine flour and powdered sugar. Cut in butter until crumbly. Press mixture into greased 13x9 inch pan.
Bake at 350 for 15 minutes.
Combine sweetened condensed milk and next 4 ingredients; pour over prepared crust.
Bake at 350 for 25 more minutes. or until golden brown. Cool in pan. Cut into squares.
I could not find plain brickle chips. So I used Heath Bits (just like a crushed up Heath bar). They worked great.
Fancy That, a yummy dessert bar just in time for the Holidays!!
