2 or 3 years ago... a friend of mine made these (what she called brownies) and we ate them for lunch. I thought it was the best thing I ever put in my mouth. So in honor of National Brownie Day which is celebrated on December 8- I'm passing on this wonderful pillsbury recipe. I know your going to love it like I do. :)
I think this recipe is considered a bar cookie. Bar cookies consist of batter or other ingredients that are poured or pressed into a pan (sometimes in multiple layers), and cut into cookie-sized pieces after baking. In British England, bar cookies are known as "tray bakes". This is truly a beautiful holiday recipe.
- 1 package (16 oz) Pillsbury® Big Deluxe™ refrigerated oatmeal raisin cookies (12 cookies)
- 2 cups Fisher® Chef's Naturals® Chopped Pecans
- 2 packages (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened
- 1 can (14 oz) Eagle Brand® Sweetened Condensed Milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 EGGLAND’S BEST eggs
- 1 cup Pillsbury BEST® All Purpose Flour
- 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1/2 cup cold LAND O LAKES® Unsalted or Salted Butter
- 3/4 cup Hershey’s® cinnamon chips
- 1 cup raisins
- 1/2 cup old-fashioned or quick-cooking oats
1. Heat oven to 350°F. In bottom of ungreased 13x9-inch pan, press cookie dough rounds evenly for crust. Sprinkle with 1 cup of the pecans; press firmly into dough. Bake 13 to 17 minutes or until golden brown.
2. Meanwhile, in large bowl, beat cream cheese with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Add milk, vanilla and eggs; beat until well blended. On low speed, beat in 1/2 cup of the flour. Pour over crust; spread evenly.
3. In medium bowl, mix brown sugar and remaining 1/2 cup flour. Cut in butter, using pastry blender or fork, until mixture looks like coarse crumbs. Stir in cinnamon chips, raisins, oats and remaining 1 cup pecans. Sprinkle over cheese mixture.
4. Bake 35 to 45 minutes longer or until set. Cool completely, about 2 hours. To serve, cut into 4 rows by 4 rows. Store in refrigerator.
