    Just try ’em! The pecans make them a little pricey where I live, but I make them as a Christmas treat which seems like a good excuse!


    • Crust:
    • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
    • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
    • 1/3 cup butter, room temperature

    • Topping:
    • 1 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
