toffee bars

what better time for a little sugar rush then this sunny wednesday afternoon?

i hosted a few ladies last night for our book club and wanted to share the recipe for these delicious treats i served. they are from the cookbook "beyond parsley", a kansas city junior league cookbook.

toffee cookie bars

1 c butter, room temp
1 c brown sugar
1 egg yolk
1 c flour
6 1.45 oz. chocolate bars
(we used chocolate chips instead)
2/3 c chopped pecans

cream together butter, brown sugar and egg yolk. add flour and stir until mixed. spread mixture in a 10x15 inch jellyroll pan which has been lined with greased foil. bake 20 minutes at 350 degrees or until brown. immediately top with candy bars (or chocolate chips). when melted, spread bars with a spatula and top with pecans.

(we sprinkled the top with a little salt while the chocolate was still soft which i highly recommend)
