Ingredients

  • Non-stick cooking spray
  • 1 tube (18 ounces) refrigerated chocolate-chip cookie dough
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 can (8 1/2 ounces) sliced pears, well drained, blotted dry and coarsely chopped

  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted

Directions

  • Heat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Press cookie dough evenly into bottom of pan. Bake until firm to the touch and browned at the edges, about 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, beat eggs until creamy. Beat in condensed milk and lime juice.
  • In another bowl mix pears, peaches, pecans, coconut, brown sugar and butter, crumbling the sugar with your fingers.
  • With a rubber spatula, spoon egg mixture onto cookie crust and spread almost to the edges. Sprinkle pear-peach mixture evenly over top.
  • Bake until egg mixture is set, about 25 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes.
  • Place butterscotch chips and cream in a medium, microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 30 to 40 seconds; stir until smooth; pour over cookies. Let cookies cool to room temperature. Refrigerate until solid. Cut into 32 bars to serve.
