    I would rather have a recipe with ingredients only, as I do not always have the cookie dough on hand.

    Sweet & Salty Chewy Pecan Bars

    Kathleen Johns from Eau Claire, WI

    These bars are easy to make, taste great with just enough salt so they're not too sweet. But I would make a double batch next time as they disappeared too fast. Also I used Oatmeal Choc. Chip Dough.

    This recipe lives up to its name, along with the fact it was quick and easy to make and clean up was a breeze. It was a hit with my family. What I like most, for a family of 3, was the size, larger size pans are way too much for us.
