DIRECTIONS

  • Set oven to 350° (oven rack to second-lowest position).
  • Grease a 13 x 9-inch baking dish.
  • In a processor (I use my small processor for this) place the flour and sugar, process for a couple of seconds.
  • Add in cold butter and vanilla; process until fine crumbs form (about 10 seconds or just until the mixture holds together).
  • Press the mixture into bottom of the baking pan.
  • Bake 350° (second-lowest oven rack) for about 12-15 minutes or until the edges are just golden brown.
  • Meanwhile in a bowl whisk together brown sugar, corn syrup, 2 teaspoons vanilla, pinch salt and eggs until well blended.
  • Mix in chopped walnuts.
  • Pour over the crust.
  • Bake for about 20 minutes or until set (these bars do not bake out high so watch closely they bake quickly!).
  • Cool for about 1 hour or more before slicing.
  • At this point you can drizzle with melted chocolate if desired.
  • Slice into bar shapes.
