Hi there– I sure wish you could meet my Monday night ladies. They come in the door in around 7:00 each week. I can hear them talking and laughing as they come up the steps. There are hugs and cups of coffee and when I finally get them to settle in, there is time to read and pray together. It’s a bright spot in my week.
And, of course, we eat. This week it’s these pie bars– nutty and sweet (a little like my ladies!)
CHOCOLATE WALNUT PIE BARS
1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter (1 stick), melted
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 tab. melted butter
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups walnuts, coarsely chopped
To make the crust, mix together the flour and 1/4 cup brown sugar. Then fold in the melted 1/2 cup butter until it’s all crumbly. Press the mixture into 9″x 13″ baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
Bake the crust at 350 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes, until it’s lightly browned.
While that’s baking, stir together the filling– beat the 3 eggs in a mixing bowl, then stir in the brown sugar and vanilla. Then mix in the butter, chocolate chips and walnuts.
Spoon the filling carefully over the crust, covering it from edge to edge. Bake it in the same 350 even for 25 to 30 minutes longer, until the filling is set. Let it cool completely and then cute into tidy bars!
