Toffee Nut Bars, a Vintage Recipe

A great bar cookie recipe, not gooey or chewy. There is a chopped nut base, then a crumb layer, then a thin spongy spicy cake-y layer. The amounts of spices can be adjusted to your taste. These work pretty well for me. From the archives in my collection. My daughter requested these, reminding me that I used to make them a lot. Things do get mislaid, though. And/or forgotten. Naaahhhh, who forgets anything at my age?!
