Irish Cream Coffee Creme Bar

2186357568795107559IDi4ZeQc1 Pouch (1lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker ® Sugar Cookie Mix

½ Cup of Chopped Pecans

1 Can (14oz) Sweetened Condensed Milk (Not Evaporated)

2 Tablespoons Irish Cream Liqueur

½ Cup of Cold Butter

1 Teaspoon Instant Coffee Granules or Crystals

Topping
3 Tablespoons of Packed Brown Sugar

1 Tablespoon Irish Cream liqueur

1 Cup of Whipping Cream

1 Teaspoon of Vanilla

1/8 Teaspoon of Ground Cinnamon

25, 2-inch Cinnamon Sticks

Directions
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease or spray an 8-inch square pan with cooking spray or oil.

2) Take out a large bowl and put the pecans and cookie mix into it, then cut in the butter and mix together until it looks like rough-textured crumbs.

3) With a fork begin to stir in the egg. Take and press half of the cookie dough mixture onto the bottom of the pan and let that bake for 15-18 minutes or until it is golden brown, set the other half of the cookie mixture aside.

4) Take out another small bowl and stir milk, the two tablespoons of liqueur and the coffee granules until thoroughly blended. Next, you want to pour it evenly over the warm crust of the heated cookie dough and then place the remaining unheated dough over it.

5) Place the pan in the oven and let it bake for 25-30 minutes or until it has browned. Let it cool for 30 minutes at room temperature first then put in refrigerator for one hour to cool down completely. Once taken out of the refrigerator let it stand for 10 minutes before cutting into it and make sure to cut 5 rows by 5 rows and keep the bars covered at room temperature.

6) Right before you serve, take out a small bowl and beat the whipping cream, brown sugar, 1 tablespoon liqueur and the vanilla with an electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks begin to form. Take a spoon and scoop out a dollop on to each of the bars. Sprinkle the tops with ground cinnamon and insert a cinnamon stick into the whipped cream.
