4 Layer Cookie Bars & Pecan Pie Muffins (Gooseberry Patch)



Today I am bringing y'all another tasty Early Bird Review from my friends over at Gooseberry Patch. The not yet released cookbook that I had the pleasure to review was Gooseberry Patch 101 Hearty Recipes. This beautiful cookbook will be released on September 1st, 2011. 101 which is not too far off. 101 Hearty Recipes is packed full of easy family meals, fresh-baked desserts and recipes for gift-giving.

This cookbook has it all! The best thing about this cookbook is that every single recipe has a mouthwatering photo to go along with it. Don't you just love that? Now you don't have to sit and image what each dish looks like.

Believe me when I tell you after seeing all the photos in this cookbook you will want to make each and every one of these recipes. This cookbook is spiral bound with a durable softcover and 112 yummy pages. This is my 4 th cookbook in the 101 cookbook series and I love each and every one of them.

As usual is was so hard to decide on what recipes to make. I got over that quickly when I came page 14 and saw the 4 Layer Cookie Bars. It was definitely an omygoodness moment for sure. My first thought was these look a bit similar to a Twix bar, but with peanut butter. The 4 Layer Cookie bars were the first recipe I tried and everyone loved them.

Just look at the photo above and you can see what each layer consists of. The hardest part of the whole recipe was waiting for the bars to set up in the fridge. But then patience has never been my thing. I did add some additional chocolate and peanut butter chips on top of the bars.

I thought the addition of the chips really took these bars over the top. Plus presentation is everything now isn't it? These cookie bars were so dangerously good that we could only eat a few. After that I sent the rest of the baking pan off to work with my husband.



4 Layer Cookie Bars

1 - sleeve rectangular buttery crackers (Ritz)
1/2 - cup margarine
2/3 - cup sugar
1/2 - cup packed brown sugar
1 - cup graham crumbs
1/4 - cup milk
2/3 - cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 - cup semi sweet or milk chocolate chips

Garnish:
1/2 cup semi sweet or milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter chips

Line the bottom of a buttered 13 x 9 in baking pan with a single layer of crackers; set aside. Melt margarine in a heavy saucepan; add sugars, graham crackers crumbs and milk. Heat over medium high heat until sugars dissolve, stirring often; spread over crackers in pan. 

Arrange another single layers of crackers on top; set aside. Combine remaining ingedients in a saucepan; heat over low heat until melted, stirring until smooth and creamy. Spread over crackers and sprinkle additional chocolate and peanut butter chips on top for garnish. Set aside until firm. (I placed the pan in the refrigerator) When firm cut into bars and serve. Makes 2 dozen bars.  

Next I moved onto these yummy little Pecan Pie Muffins from page 92. I found myself wanting a quick little sweet treat after dinner and these yummy little gems were perfect. My husband described these mini muffins as a "little piece of heaven". Have you ever had a pecan pie in a muffin? They are so addicting and so good.

Believe me when I tell you that you can't eat just one. My whole family cleaned the plate on these guys and left nothing behind. I have made pecan pie muffins in the past, but for some reason this one tasted just a bit better. These yummy little bite size muffins will defiantly be making a presence on my holiday baking list.

Pecan Pie Muffins

1 - cup light brown sugar
1/2 - cup all purpose flour 
2 - eggs, beaten
2/3 - cup melted butter
1 - cup chopped pecans
1 - teaspoon vanilla extract
additional pecan halves, optional

In a bowl, stir together all ingredients except pecan halves. Line a mini muffin tin with liners and spray the liners with non baking spray. 

Fill each mini muffin tins 2/3 full with batter. Top each with a pecan half. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 - 15 minutes or until golden brown. Makes 2 1/2 dozen mini muffins.


I also made these wonderful Parmesan Roasted Potatoes from page 73. These potatoes are so easy to toss together and they pair nicely with just about any cut of meat. Just toss all the ingredients in a large Ziploc bag, shake and then add to your buttered baking pan. You can leave the skin on or off so it is really up to you. This dish definitely fits right in to the casual and comforting category.

Golden Parmesan Roasted Potatoes

1/4 - cup all purpose flour 
1/4 - cup grated parmesan cheese
3/4 - teaspoon salt
1/8 - teaspoon pepper
1/3 - cup butter, melted
6 - potatoes, peeled and cut into wedges
Garnish - fresh parsley, optional

Place flour, cheese, salt and pepper in a large plastic ziploc bag.; Shake to mix well. Add potatoes and shake to coat all of the potatoes. 

Pour butter into a 13 x 9 inch baking pan; tilting to coat the pan. Arrange potaotes in pan. Bake uncovered, at 375 degrees for one hour. Sprinkle with parsley. Serves 4-6



Here are a few of the recipes from each chapter. I have a few of the ones below on my own to try list.
  • Easy French Dip Sandwiches (cant wait to try)
  • Nacho Chicken Dip
  • Sandwich on a Stick
  • Sangria Punch
  • Roasted Chicken & Apples
  • Fancy Crescent Chicken
  • Open Faced Lone Star Burgers
  • Cajun Oven Fries
  • Meatloaf Mexican
  • Peachy Keen Sweet Potatoes (cant wait to try)
  • Cornbread Chicken Pot Pie (a must try)
  • Bread Bowl Beef Stew
  • Strawberry Bread
  • Frosted Cherry Drops (a must try)
  • Marble Cheesecake
  • Monster Bars
What I love most about this cookbook is all of the recipes are easy peasy to make. Plus most of the recipes require only 30 minutes or less to prepare. All of the recipes are hearty, simple and delicious. I couldn't help but to think back on my own childhood and remember all of those easy home cooked meals my mother used to make.

This cookbook is for perfect for everyone. Whether you are a pro at cooking or just starting out this is a must have cookbook. To be quite honest I think any and all of the Gooseberry Patch Cookbooks are a must have to your cookbook collection.

I think of Rice Krispy Chicken and mashed potatoes. We take rice krispies and roll them with a rolling pin, smash them up real fine. Then dip the chicken in butter then in the rice krispies. Place on a broiler pan so the dripping fall into the pan below and bake @400 degrees for about 45 min or until nice and brown. Serve with mashed potatoes. Mmmm one of my favorite meals. The skin of the chicken gets real krispy, that is my fave part.

A hearty meal to us is bbq turkey with sourcream potatoes and homemade rolls. YUM! Thanks for all your wonderful recipes. I have one question on the recipe, 4 Layer Cookie Bars. Is the "Rectangular buttery cracker" like a "Club" cracker? Sorry, I just would love to make these and want to do it right. Also, do you crush them or just layer them on your pan. Thanks!! shaunabencourtney@yahoo.com

When I think of hearty meals I think of my mom's homemade vegetable soup. It may be a soup but it makes for a hearty meal. I have such fond memories of her cooking this soup. She would cook the roast in a crock pot the day before. Then she would get up very early around 3:30 am and add the roast with all the broth into a big pot. Then after adding in all the vegetables and other ingredients she would cook it all day long until supper that night. My family would wake up to that wonderful smell of it already cooking. We could barely wait for supper. My mom passed away years ago but every time I make that soup the same way she did it brings back such loving memories. I cook it in the same exact pot she used so that makes even more loving memories. My boys grew up eating this soup often asking for it during the hot summer months. Someday they will get this pot with all of it's loving memories. Knowing they will add their own loving memories while cooking this soup warms my heart.

I love all your great, quick and easy as well as yummy recipes. Your photos are great too! I liked you on FB, and I'm a fan of GBP, as well as Circle of Friends and now I'm a follower on Google. My favorite hearty dish for the family is beef stew with warm butter biscuits! Keep them coming. Jeanne, Oswego, NY. Hunt44@twcny.rr.com

For me its a toss up between beef stew with egg noodles or chicken and dumplings - both are wonderful stick to the ribs meals. Throw in homemade biscuits - HEAVEN!

Any meal made by momma for her family is a hearty meal to me, BUT for the choice of just one, it would be roast beef with roasted veggies and homemade bread. Yum!

When I think of a hearty meal, I think of a roast with potatoes and carrots and dinner rolls. Reminds me of wonderful family dinners together that left me very full and happy!

I have a chicken noodle casserole recipe that is so good on a chilly fall or cold winter day. I would love to win this cookbook. I am an avid Gooseberry Patch Cookbook collector. Happy Labor Day Weekend. annbrandau@yahoo.com

When I think of a hearty meal, I think of a big bowl of chili. What makes it even better is all of the fixings! Shredded cheese, sour cream, and sliced black olives on top are fabulous! Even scooping the chili out with tortilla chips is tasty! Mmm! Now I want some chili! BRING ON THE FALL!!

I think of taco soup adding tacos crushed to the bowl first, then the coup and topping it off with sour cream and shredded cheese. It's so good on a rainy day and easy to fix.
Thanks for the chance to get a cookbook.

My fav. hearty meal is fried cubed steak with rice and gravy and some butterbeans on the side. Add in some biscuits to sop the gravy. Hearty at it's finest. (elaine1255(at)yahoo(dot)com)

The hearty meal that comes to my mind would be Pot Roast with all the fixings. My boyfriend makes a fabulous roast & my kids just gobble it down :)
