Fabulous Food Friday with Crazy Daisy

Welcome to Fabulous Food Friday! While exploring the blogosphere, I realized that there were many great recipes to share. So every Friday, I am going to try to feature an awesome blogger with their great recipe! Today’s feature blogger is Jasey from Crazy Daisy. When you get a chance, swing by Jasey yummy blog. You can even link up your recipes on her Tuesday Tastes Parties!

Here’s a little blurb from Jasey herself:

Happy Day to everyone! Let me introduce myself. I'm Jasey from Crazy Daisy. Besides a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, and teacher, I am just a Wyoming girl who lives for the little moments. You know, the ones that are so teensy they are lost if you are not paying attention. I try to hold on to these moments, wherever they may occur- around the table, at the park, - really anywhere! Crazy Daisy is my inspiration place - a place to celebrate life's most simple wonders, and to share ideas that warm my heart. Recipes, crafts, quilting, DIY projects, kid activities... you just never know what you may find. I would love to have you visit sometime when you have a minute!!!

I would like to thank Kelly, for inviting me over to her Fabulous Food Friday! Isn't her blog way too much fun?!?! I simply love what she has done with the place!

Now, on to the sweet stuff! I thought I might share my brand new favorite treat...Tollhouse Cookie Pie Bars. I adore these sweet little delights! They start with a simple crust made with brown sugar and butter (need I say more?) and are topped with a nutty gooey chocolate layer.
I am convinced this is what heaven tastes like! Here's the recipe

Tollhouse Cookie Pie Bars
*adapted from Nestle's Chocolate Walnut Pie Bars

1-1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup butter (1 stick), softened
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
3 large eggs
3/4 cup light corn syrup
3/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 (12-oz. pkg.) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 (8-oz. pkg.) chopped walnuts

*Note - The recipe called for 1-1/4 cups nuts, which left only 1/4 cup left in the bag. Rather than waste them or leave them to get lost in my pantry, I simply add the entire bag.

Preheat oven to 350. Beat flour, butter, and brown sugar in a bowl until crumbly. Press onto bottom of greased 9x13-inch pan. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned.

Meanwhile, beat sugar, eggs, corn syrup, sugar, melted butter, and vanilla together in a large bowl. Stir in semi-sweet chips and walnuts; pour over hot crust.

Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until center is set (it may look a little puffy, but will settle into a wonderful gooey chocolate layer as it cools). Cool completely in pan on wire rack -if you can resist! Cut and enjoy! Seriously, these are my new fav! Give them a try and let me know what you think! I would love to know!
Thanks again, Kelly! What a fun visit!
