There seems to be a great divide in home cooking between cooks who use mixes and cooks who don’t. Some swear by them; some swear at them. It’s one of those ‘neither the twain shall meet’ cruxes. A handy mix, though, tucked away in your cabinet or freezer, can sometimes mean the difference between a fun dessert and no dessert at all—like these easy, last-minute bar cookies. SAM
2 cups biscuit mix
1 3/4 cups firmly packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons water
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup chopped pecans
1 (6-ounce) package semisweet chocolate morsels
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan and set aside. In a large bowl, combine the biscuit mix, brown sugar, water, and eggs. Stir in the pecans and chocolate morsels. Spread the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 30 minutes, or until set. Cool in the pan before cutting into 2-inch squares.
Makes 2 dozen squares.
