These were delectable and devoured.
This makes on 8x8 inch pan cut into small squares or any size you feel like cutting.
1 cup flour, I used spelt, but all purpose works the same
1/3 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/3 cup real butter, cold, cut in small bits
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 8oz package cream cheese, softened to room temperature
4 oz semi sweet chocolate, melted
1 teaspoon instant coffee granules, optional
4 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a large mixing bowl, place all the crust ingredients except the butter.
This is the crust just out of the oven.
Allow to cool for 25 minutes then refrigerate for an hour until well set and chilled.
You could substitute the coffee granules for a teaspoon of raspberry flavor or orange...mint? hazelnut...
Let me know if you try a different flavor!
