Recipe by Bayhill
Posted for the Zaar World Tour 2006-Hungary. I haven't tried this recipe, but it seems to be a very quick and easy cookie to make. These bars are sticky and gooey and similar to a walnut pie.
Top Review by Chef Two Hearts
This is an excellent treat and easy to make as all reviewers have mentioned. I made a mistake and added a total of 4 eggs, which turned out very well. Just a hint of a custard taste to enjoy! Also, we took plunge and actually put this in a 9" pie pan. Again - excellent results. We used chopped walnuts for the nuts. Unlike one reviewer, I did not find this treat too sweet. It is sweet yes, but with a cup of unsweetened tea it is such a simple delight. We're not sugar hounds around here and thought the sweetness was just right. Tip: I used my immersion blender to quickly froth the eggs in a bowl. (Remember, I used four eggs by mistake.) Thank you Bayhill!

Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat oven to 325ºF. Grease a 9" square baking pan; set aside.
- In a medium bowl, cream together 3/4 cup of the brown sugar and the margarine. Add vanilla and flour; mix well. Pat this mixture into the bottom of the baking pan.
- In a small bowl, beat the eggs until foamy. Add the remaining 1 cup brown sugar; mix well. Pour into the pan over the first mixture. Sprinkle the nuts evenly over the top.
- Bake at 325ºF for 30 to 40 minutes, or until center is no longer jiggly. Cool completely before slicing. Slice into 2-1/2"x1-1/2" bars.
