English Toffee Bars

When I saw this recipe I thought I hit the mother load. It comes from 1001 and Cookie Recipes, a gift from my husband when we were first married. I am a toffee lover and these bars are so good you will be making them all the time, at least I am. I think they would be the best ice cream sandwich cookie but have not ventured that far with them yet. This is What’s Cookin on Beaty’s Creek today.


2 cups all purpose flour
1 t cinnamon
1 cup Crisco
2 cups packed brown sugar
1 large egg yolk
1 cup chopped walnuts

Cream Crisco and brown sugar, now add egg yolk mix until creamy. Now add flour, cinnamon, and nuts, mix well. Pour into a 9 inch square pan, dough will be thick. I flattened mine in the pan with parchment paper.. Bake at 275’ for 1 hour.
