Brown Sugar Nut Bars

 Makes 9 bars                  20230303_184110.thumb.jpg.9a617d9c06a4185964145e7bf5305402.jpg 


1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup brown sugar, packed

1 cup flour   



2 eggs

1 cup brown sugar, packed

1 tablespoon flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder  

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup chopped nuts


Cream butter and 1/2 cup of brown sugar. Mix in flour. Press lightly in the bottom of a greased 8” x 8” pan. Bake at 350o for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, beat eggs, flour, and remaining sugar until smooth. Add vanilla, baking powder, and nuts. Spread over the crust. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes more. The filling should be just set. Cut into 9 squares.


For an extra rich bar. Add 1/2 cup chocolate chips to the egg mixture before baking.


Some recipes call for cooling the base before adding the filling. I don't but I do suggest that you do not compress the filling tightly. It makes for a much lighter bar.
