They are even better with walnuts. My grandmother made them all of the time when I was a kid. I still have her old recipe booklet from Diamond Walnuts from the 70s. It is the same except it calls for walnuts. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Easy and simple. Very chewy and delicious. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are very sweet. They're like a praline in a cookie form. I adjusted the recipe slightly but I think it made a big difference. First off, always toast nuts before you bake them into a dough. Second, brown the butter. You're already melting it anyway! And third, add about a half tsp. of salt. That's a no brainier. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Well, the name "Brown Sugar Chewies" says it all. They taste just like brown sugar. I'm giving this 4 stars not because I was crazy about these bars, but because they were easy to throw together last-minute and because I think this could be a great basic recipe to add something to. I'll have to do some experimenting. item not reviewed by moderator and published

One of the simplest recipes - but so incredibly delicious! They definitely did not disappoint. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these last night, very good. I doubled the recipe for a larger pan (not sure of the measurements but think of a traditional brownie pan, rectangular... I didn't have pecans; they were still good. I would like to stress that the raw batter is to die for! Haha! They don't taste good right out of the oven for some reason, but the next morning they were amazing. Make sure you sprinkle the powdered sugar on top; mind got a bit of a crinkled top. Paula is amazing! item not reviewed by moderator and published
