English Toffee Squares

These are the cookies of my childhood.

Whenever there was a bake sale or school party, when my sister and I were children, these were the cookies my mother would bake, because they taste wonderful and couldn't be easier to make.

1 Cup softened butter

1 Cup firmly packed brown sugar

1 egg yolk

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 Cups sifted flour

8 ounces milk chocolate bar, broken into pieces

1/4 cup chopped walnuts



Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.
Cream butter and sugar together. Blend in egg yolk and vanilla. Add flour; mix well. Spread in a greased jelly roll pan (15 1/2 by 10 1/2 inches). Bake for 15-20 minutes. Remove from oven; place broken pieces of chocolate bar on hot base. When melted, spread evenly. Sprinkle with walnuts. When they the cookies are cool, cut into squares or rectangles.
