ALMOND COOKIE BARS

3/4 cup quick-cooking oats
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar, divided
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 egg, beaten
1 tbsp milk
1/2 tsp almond extract
1 pkg (6-oz) semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup finely chopped pecans, divided

In a medium mixing bowl combine the oats, 1/2 cup of the brown sugar, butter, flour, egg, milk, and almond extract.  Stir the chocolate chips and half the pecans into the oat mixture.

Spread the mixture evenly in a lightly buttered 8-inch square glass baking dish.

Make the topping by combining the remaining brown sugar and remaining pecans in a small bowl; sprinkle over the batter.

Microwave on high for 3 minutes; rotate dish if not using a turntable. Cook another 3 to 5 minutes or until the sugar topping is melted.

Cool completely before cutting into squares.

Store in an airtight container.
