Let’s see…. What adjectives would describe these cookie bars? The top three that I think of are rich, delicious, and easy. Cookie bars are much less time consuming to make than regular cookies. I first ate these Butter Pecan Bars a number of years ago at a friend’s house. I thought they were so good, but SO rich. You should probably cut them into smaller pieces than I have shown here. With all that cream cheese, butter, and sugar, they are not exactly low calorie!
