My mother-in-law has 2 issues of the Taste of Home Cookbook and I made this with her for dessert one night. Well I started craving them and wanted to bake so I made them for me and hubby.
2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour, divided 2 cups quick-cooking oats 1-1/2 cups packed brown sugar 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon salt 1-1/2 cups cold butter, cubed 2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips 1 cup chopped pecans 1 jar (12 ounces) caramel ice cream topping
Directions: In a large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, oats, brown sugar, baking soda and salt. Cut in butter until crumbly. Set half aside for topping. Press the remaining crumb mixture into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 15 minutes. Sprinkle with the chocolate chips and pecans. Whisk caramel topping and remaining flour until smooth; drizzle over top. Sprinkle with the reserved crumb mixture. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack for 2 hours before cutting. Yield: about 4-1/2 dozen.
