This is another recipe courtesy of Momma Pixie.  She has been telling me for weeks now to make these.  And now that I have, I wonder what I was so preoccupied with that I didn't make them sooner than today.  This recipe is from a Gooseberry Patch cookbook.

What you will need:
1 cup or 2 sticks of butter, melted
2 cups of brown sugar, packed
2 eggs, beaten
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1 cup of chopped pecans (I only had walnuts in my feel free to improvise)
1 cup of white chocolate chips
3/4 cup of toffee or caramel baking chips

In a large bowl, mix together your melted butter and brown sugar.

Next, add in the beaten egg and vanilla.  Make sure your butter has cooled because you do not want to start cooking the egg and then you have little gross egg bits floating around.  Eww.

Now that is mixed together, add in the flour, baking powder, and salt.  Stir until everything is incorporated.

Final step is to add the chopped nuts, white chocolate chips, and toffee bits.

I am pretty sure there is a magical culinary formula out there that determines the proportion of batter to baking accessories......and this recipe totally doesn't care.

Pour the batter into a well greased 13x9 baking pan and bake for 25 to 30 minutes.

Let cool in the pan before you start cutting into them.  Top with vanilla ice cream and you have yourself a very easy dessert that everyone will love.  


  1. Looks yummy, as always. What I want to know is how you can make all these scrumptious treats all the time and resist eating the whole lot of them. Maybe I'm just weak....I could totally scarf down that whole pan. :)

  2. Shana, It's called having friends and coworkers that I can pawn these off on. This batch went to my hairdresser today. Problem solved!
