chocolate-pecan pie cookie bars

Dare I say that I like these Chocolate-Pecan Pie Cookie Bars even more than I like pecan pie? These have heaps of pecan and chocolate pieces, with just enough goo to hold them together. And the base is Dorie’s Sweet Tart Dough, which is so easy to work with. I didn’t even need to roll it out or to chill it before baking it here…I whizzed the dough up in the food processor, pressed it into the pan, weighed it down and it was ready to blind bake right away. The cookie bars are easier and faster to make than pie, and they cool faster, too. (That means you can be eating them faster!)

I made a half recipe in a loaf pan, but if you have a big crowd to serve, go for the full 9-inch square because they’ll be gone fast. If you need to make them in advance, they seem to keep just fine for a few days in the fridge.

For the recipe, see Dorie’s Cookies by Dorie Greenspan. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the TWD Blogroll and please join us if you haven’t already.

  1. I CANNOT WAIT to make these! I am not a pecan pie fan so I reckon this might change my mind…

  2. Ohh these look wonderful! I sometimes find pecan pie to be too much of a mouthful, if that makes sense, so maybe I will like these more, as well! 😘

  3. I am looking forward to these for my pre-thanksgiving meal. These seem to be a hit with those that made them.
