White Chocolate Brownies

White Chocolate Brownies

One of the things I am reminded of when I don’t post for a little while is that one of the main reasons why I post is so I can keep track of recipes that I LOVE.  Have you ever made a recipe that you LOVED and then went back to find the recipe and you could not find it?  You would think in this day of Pinterest that wouldn’t happen, but somehow it does.

I panicked this morning that I wouldn’t be able to “re-find” this recipe.  Luckily, I found it on one of my Pinterest boards so potential crisis averted!  These were definitely right in the category of recipes we LOVED…make again and keep in your back pocket recipe love.  They are incredibly fudgy and taste like a really good sugar cookie.  Their tops get nice and crackly, too.  Just like a brownie should be!

I would also call these Speedy White Chocolate Brownies.  Another big plus in my book.  Will be making these A lot. Enjoy!

Pecan Pie Bars

Pecan Pie Bars

I haven’t posted any sweets this month so I figured it was about time.  After all, I am all about moderation.  These Pecan Pie Bars taste just like pecan pie, but way better in my opinion because of the nice thick shortbread crust.  The ratio of about 50% shortbread and 50% pecan filling is perfect in my opinion.  We all LOVED these.

I know sometimes we think of pecan pie as a fall dessert, but I think these would be a great Valentine’s dessert with a little chocolate drizzled on top.  But honestly they are perfect as is, too!

I have heard feedback when people make pecan bars that they stick or the filling hardened too much, but I didn’t have one issue with these.  I would just suggest either using parchment paper or doing a good job making sure your pan gets greased all over and definitely in the areas where the filling  is.   You also don’t want to over bake these as that could cause some sticking issues.   Honestly, I just used some baking spray and had absolutely no issues at all.

Enjoy!
