Anything is good, in moderation. I cook because I love to and because I can share with those around me. I crochet for the same reason.

Do what you want to do, enjoy what you do and use it to touch those around you.

Nutty Toffee Bars

These are a nice cookie bar.  If you are allergic to chocolate, you can replace the toffee bits with more almonds, toasted coconut or oatmeal.

  1/2 C Butter                                                                     2 Tbl Flour
  1 1/2 C Brown Sugar, Packed                                            1 Tbl Baking Powder
  1 C Flour                                                                          1/2 Tsp Salt
  2 Large Eggs                                                                    1 C Toffee Bits
  1/2 Tsp Vanilla                                                                  1 C Almonds, Slivered
  1/2 Tsp Almond Extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cream shortening and 1/2 c brown sugar together in bowl until light and fluffy.  Stir in 1 cup flour; blend well.  Press mixture with your hands into bottom of an ungreased 13 x 9 inch oblong pan.  Bake for 10 minutes.  Remove from oven and set aside.  Beat eggs well in a separate bowl.  Beat in 1 cup brown sugar and vanilla.  Combine flour, baking powder and salt in another bowl.  Stir into egg mixture.  Fold into toffee and almonds.  Pile mixture on top of baked dough in pan.  Return to the oven and bake for 25 minutes.  Cool slightly then cut into bars.
