  • Mix brown sugar, flour, walnuts, butter, eggs, baking powder, vanilla extract, and salt together in a bowl by hand until smooth. Spread evenly into the prepared pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the top is dry and edges have started to pull away from the sides of the pan, 25 to 30 minutes.

  • Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 to 15 minutes before slicing.

Cook's Notes:

You can use chopped pecans instead of walnuts, if desired.

You can add chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, peanut butter chips, or white chocolate chips, etc. You can also change the light brown sugar to dark for a more intense flavor.

this recipe is a great one; not only for taste but they are so easy to whip up at last minute. These are sure to go over at any event or function. I love the versatility of the add-ins also. I used up peanuts butterscotch morsels semi-sweet and a few holiday M&M's I had on hand. I think next time I'll double the recipe and use a larger pan. These are not a thick bar using a 9x13.

This was awesome. I did change a couple of things. Mix everything but the flour until smooth, then add the flour. Also, used white chocolate chips. Read More
