A Sure Thing...You Need It!

Oh my gosh....These are so good!!!  The bonus is there are no fancy ingredients. You can probably make them without even going to the store. I did. Well, except I was a few pecans short. So I just crushed some almonds and threw them in with the pecans. YUM! (Here's what mine looked like before I cut them in squares with my pizza cutter.)


Cleta Bailey's Toffee Squares

Ingredients

  • 2 sticks Butter
  • 1 cup Packed Brown Sugar
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla
  • 2 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 2 cups Chocolate Chips (milk Or Semi-sweet)
  • ¾ cups Finely Chopped Pecans

Preparation Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Add egg, vanilla, and flour and mix until combined. Spread on cookie sheet with an offset spatula until thin. Bake for 15 minutes, or until golden. Remove pan from oven and sprinkle on chocolate chips. Return to oven for 1 minute. Remove from oven and spread chocolate thinly over the cookie layer.
Sprinkle with chopped pecans. Cut into squares.


I first heard of these through Pioneer Woman. Well, say no more.

  6. Anything with almonds and pecans is great in my book. These look delicious. Are these the ones you have to cut while they're still warm cuz they set up like a rock (a delicious rock.)

  14. I will be making these for sure! Thanks for sharing! Also, I really loved the video in the post below...even tho it made me cry! That song always does that to me, but it was especially moving to see it sung by so many in this so-called politically correct country of ours in a mall!

    Have a great day,
    Cheryl
