    1. Hi- in your instructions you mention preheating the oven to 400 and then further down you say to bake in a 375 oven. Which is correct? Thanks!

      1. 375…I fixed it. Sorry about that. I experimented with both temperatures. I liked the cookies baked at 375 a little better, but 400 for shorter time actually works too.

    2. Had real trouble getting the “pudding-like” consistency for the filling. Followed the directions exactly, but left it very runny.

      1. I’m sorry you had trouble. It sounds like you need to cook it longer. Some stove tops vary depending on gas or electric so temperature settings are always matched.

    3. Hi! Can’t wait to try this recipe, but I need to make double or maybe even triple the amount. Are there any ingredients you’d recommend I Not double or triple completely? (Like for ex., less melted butter or less eggs, etc..?) Thanks! Love your recipes!

    4. These look really tasty (as do all of your recipes!) Do you have a food processor that you prefer? Also, you noted caramel syrup (ChocZero) in the ingredients, and maple syrup in the directions. Do you have a preference for the flavor? Thanks!

      1. I’ll get that fixed on the syrup. You can actually use either one. But I prefer the caramel. The food processor I have is a Breville. It’s pretty awesome. Expensive but it can grate a whole block of cheese in seconds. I also like Cruisinarts.

    5. I made these last night on my electric stove and it did take awhile for the filling to get to the right texter but it was good. The cookies are yummy. Thank you Annie for the great recipe

    6. Can’t wait to try! My daughter and I luv pecan pie bars I make. We need a low carb version so thAnks. I will put ‘cookie’ in my muffin tin tho to not worry about spillage and create lil pies.
