Toffee Squares

Comment on this recipe

This recipe was given to my mother by a lady who lived upstairs in our duplex right after the second World War. I've made these cookies for years and years and sharing them with friends and family at holiday time makes me happy.

Ingredients

1 cup butter
1 egg yolk
1 cup dark brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
Topping:
1 package of 6 regular Hershey milk chocolate bars
3/4 cup finely chopped nuts

Instructions

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, with an electric mixer on low speed, cream butter and brown sugar. Mix in egg yolk, vanilla and salt. Gradually add the flour, mixing until all is combined. Press the dough evenly onto a 12x18 inch jelly roll pan. Bake about 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Break up chocolate bars and put pieces evenly over the hot crust. Spread the softened chocolate evenly with a spatula. Sprinkle with the finely chopped nuts, pressing lightly to set. Cool before cutting into squares. Makes about 5 dozen squares.
