Butter Bars

Recipe by mandagirl

This cookie recipe uses no baking powder or soda, so the cookies come out crisp and buttery. It's one of my family's favorite cookie bars.

Yummy! My whole family gobbled these cookies up. I didn't have any chocolate chips but with the pecans on it, we didn't miss the chips at all. I'll definitely make this again but will bake them for less time.
