Ewing Family Cookie Day Cookies

Yesterday, we had our annual Ewing Family Cookie Day. Every year, my MiL and SiL get together and bake Christmas cookies...ALL DAY! It's a great time and we make enough cookies to fill a bakery.

These cookies are an important part of my Christmas Menu . And as such, I am posting my favorite recipe from Cookie Day:

Susie's Homemade Caramel Bars

I made a triple batch but the recipe is for a single one:-)

Ingredients:
1 cup flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
2 cups pecans, chopped
1 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
2 tsps vanilla
20 vanilla caramels
2 tbls milk
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Stir together flour and brown sugar. Cut in butter until it looks like cornmeal. Press into 13x9x2-inch pan. Bake for 15 minutes.

2. Sprinkle pecans over the crust. Combine sweentend condensed milk and vanilla and pour over the pecans. Bake 25 minutes more. Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, combine the caramels and milk in a small saucepan. Melt over medium-low heat. Pour mixture over the baked filling. Sprinkle the chocolate on top. Cool completely.

4. For easing cutting, freeze for 30 minutes. Cut into 48 bars and enjoy:-)
