Chinese Chews

These are called Chinese Chews. They’re like a Blondie but with a crunchy shell and a chewy inside. Not really sure where the name comes from because, as far as I know, there isn’t anything inherently Chinese about them. If you know otherwise, please fill me in.

Chinese Chews

1 pound brown sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened (salted or unsalted – remember it’s foolproof y’all)
3 eggs, beaten
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 ½ cups chopped pecans
Optional: powdered sugar for dusting

Preheat oven to 350°F.

In a mixing bowl, combine brown sugar, butter, eggs, vanilla, flour, baking powder, and salt.

Add chopped nuts.

Spread evenly in a 9×13″ baking pan and bake at 350°F for about 30 minutes, until crust begins to brown.

Cool slightly, cut and serve.

Dust with powdered sugar if desired.

  1. Hello. You don't have an email, or I would have written to you privately. Pardon me, but I do believe that these photos come from a blog "She Wears Many Hats". Perhaps you are new to blogging, but it is considered to be bad manners to post someone else's photos/recipes without either asking for permission, and/or linking your photo/recipe source back to where you copied it.
