  • Total Time
    Prep: 35 min. + chilling Bake: 15 min. + cooling
  • Makes
    about 3-1/2 dozen

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • FILLING/GLAZE:
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon shortening
  • 2/3 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon water

Directions

  • In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla and salt. Gradually add flour and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or until easy to handle.
  • For filling, melt chocolate chips and shortening in a microwave-safe bowl; stir until smooth. Set aside 1/4 cup for glaze. To remaining chocolate, stir in the pecans, milk, vanilla and salt. Cover and refrigerate until cool, about 15 minutes.
  • Place a 16x12-in. piece of foil in a greased baking sheet; lightly sprinkle with flour. Divide dough in half; place one portion on foil. Roll into a 14x5-in. rectangle. Spread half of the filling lengthwise on half of the dough to within 1/2 in. of edges. Using foil, fold dough over filling; seal edges. Repeat with remaining dough and filling. Bake at 350° until golden brown, 15-20 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes.
  • For glaze, warm reserved chocolate; stir in corn syrup and water. Spread over cookies. Cool completely. Cut widthwise into 3/4-in. strips.

    This look yummy. Should I fold the dough length over length or width wise? Should be stated in the recipe to help others
