|English Toffee Cookie Bars p. 158|
This cookie bar is quick and easy. That is what I love about most of Gooseberry patch recipes. I did alter this recipe because I didn't have exactly what the recipe called for but it turned out none-the-less very yummy.
1cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
8 - 1-1/2 oz. milk chocolate candy bars, broken into pieces
1 cup chopped walnuts
1. Blend butter and brown sugar. Add egg yolk and vanilla; Mix well. Add flour and mix well.
2. Pat dough into an ungreased 15/10 jelly-roll pan.. Bake at 350 degrees for about 18-20 min.until edges are lightly golden. Remove from oven.
3. Immediately place chocolate pieces on top. When chocolate is melted spread with a spatula, like frosting. (I used the candy melting discs. in place to the candy bars; melted them in microwave and spread it on) Sprinkle on chopped nuts. (I used pecans because that is what I had available.) Cut into squares. Makes 2&1/2 dozen.
