These heavenly bar cookies are crowned by a topping of melted chocolate and chopped nuts

Top Review by Engrossed

These were very good but just not as heavenly as I was expecting. They definately have a "cookie" taste for the dough part (like chocolate chip). They are very soft. I followed the recipe exactly except mine baked for 27 minutes until testing clean. I think I would prefer a shortbread dough with this and I would chop the toffee bars in larger pieces next time. This is a very nice recipe though and it was devoured very quickly by my co-workers and everyone wanted the recipe. Made for Zaar tag.

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 34 teaspoon baking soda
  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • 34 cup butter, softened
  • 34 cup granulated sugar

  2. Spray an 8-inch square baking pan with vegetable cooking spray.
  3. Mix together flour, baking soda, and salt.
  4. Beat together butter and sugar at medium speed until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla.
