is my favorite time of year...I love all the leaves changing, the
chilly weather, it's the perfect season to bake and I love all the
comfort foods that you get to make. I'm always looking for new recipes
and the perfect cookbook to get me started is Hometown Harvest from Gooseberry Patch. This book is filled with recipes, tips and warm fall memories. You have Hometown
Pancake Breakfast, Church Social Soup Supper, Thanksgiving Dinner to
Remember, Game Day Get- Together, Pumpkin Patch Sweets, Slow-Cooker
Potluck Pleasers, and Over the River & Through the Woods. The
last section is filled with stories and memories from people around the
world. I really enjoyed reading the traditions that everyone shared.
I've been whipping up quite a few recipes, but the one that stood out the most are these bars. I make homemade toffee all the time and couldn't believe you could make them into bars. Well let me tell you...they are so simple to make and taste divine. I can't wait to make them again!
Ingredients are as follows:
1 C butter, softened
1 C brown sugar
1 egg yolk
1 tsp. vanilla
2 C all-purpose flour
8 (1 1/2 oz.) milk chocolate candy bars (I used 1 C chocolate chips)
1 C chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream together the butter and brown sugar.
Add the egg yolk and vanilla; stir to combine.
Mix in the flour.
Pat the dough into an ungreased 15 x 10" cookie sheet. (I have to say, this dough was quite sticky, however I found that if I wet my hands a little it made spreading the dough a lot easier!)
Bake for 18-20 minutes; until lightly brown around the edges.
Remove from oven and immediately pour on the chocolate chips.
Wait a few minutes then evenly spread over the bars.
Sprinkle on the chopped nuts.
Slice, serve and enjoy!
