Chocolate pecan shortbread bars. I have included the recipe below. This is a simple, quick recipe if you are short on time.
Chocolate Pecan Shortbread Bars
1 Cup salted butter (room temperature)
1/2 Cup powdered sugar
1/2 Cup granulated sugar
1 Teaspoon vanilla
3/4 Cup (divided) very finely chopped pecans
2 Cups flour
1 Cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels
Cream butter and sugar well. Add vanilla and mix well. Add flour gradually, mixing well between additions. Stir in 1/2 Cup chopped pecans. This mixture may be crumbly. Grease the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch pan. I also line the pan with baking parchment. Press the mixture into the prepared pan. Bake at 325 for 20-25 minutes until just barely golden brown. Remove from oven, sprinkle chocolate morsels over surface evenly and return to oven for about 5 minutes until chocolate has melted. Remove from oven and gently spread melted chocolate until it covers the surface. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup of pecans. Allow to cool for a few minutes. Cut into squares while still slightly warm and remove from pan. I cut into 35 pieces (5 cuts length wise by 7 cuts across).
