Toffee-Nut Bars

Toffee-Nut Bars

Bottom Layer :

  • 1/2 cup softened butter*
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup flour


Mix butter and brown sugar together well, then stir in flour. Press and flatten with hand to cover the bottom of a 13x9" pan. Bake for 10 min at 350.


Topping:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup moist shredded coconut
  • 1 cup chopped almonds


Beat the eggs, then stir in brown sugar and vanilla. Add flour, baking powder and salt and stir well. Mix in coconut and almonds. Spread over bottom layer and bake for 25 min. at 350. Cool slightly.... then cut into bars.

*The original recipe called for half butter, half shortening in the crust.  I prefer to use all butter.
