Why I Love This Recipe

These are a bit different than the squares of the same name. It is clusters of the nuts with batter on the top.

Ingredients You'll Need

3/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
6 oz. pkg. (1 cup) semi sweet chocolate chips, divided
1/3 cup softened butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
8 doz. pecan halves


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a small bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt; set aside.

Combine over hot (not boiling) water 1/2 cup chocolate chips and butter.

Stir until morsels are melted and mixture is smooth.

Transfer to a small bowl.

Stir in sugar and egg; beat with wooden spoon. Stir in flour mixture; mix well.

For each cookie place 3 pecan halves (with ends touching at centre) on a cookie sheet.

Drop rounded tsp. of batter in centre of pecans. Bake for 8 to 9 minutes.

Cool completely.

Spoon glaze on top.

Glaze: Melt over hot (not boiling) water the remaining 1/2 cup chocolate chips; stir until smooth.

Place 1/4 tsp. in centre of each cookie.
