Cookie Tuesday - English Toffee Squares
I've had this recipe for ages, and while the squares don't taste exactly like Heath Bar toffee, the taste is still very good. Perhaps walnut or pecan bars would be a more appropriate name. And I'll bet you could use toffee bits instead of nuts for a more authentic flavor. These squares have long been a favorite in the house.
English Toffee Squares
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg yolk
1 egg white
1 cup finely chopped walnuts or pecans
Preheat oven to 350º F.
Grease a 9 x 13 pan with cooking spray.
Melt butter, add sugar, flour, vanilla, and very slightly beaten egg yolk.
Spread evenly in the pan.
Spread lightly beaten egg white over top and sprinkle evenly with chopped nuts.
Bake 20 minutes or until lightly browned.
Remove from oven and let sit in pan 3-4 minutes.
Cut into squares while still in pan and allow to cool thoroughly before removing.
Makes 18 squares.
