When I was working at UC Davis back in the 90's, one of my favorite things to do was take a break and walk over to the Coffee House to buy a latte and a sweet treat. I would always keep my fingers crossed that it was a Toffee Bar day. Ahhh...the delicious Toffee Bar-- soft and chewy with just the right amount of chocolate chips and walnuts. Sigh....
The Coffee House publishes a cookbook and I bought it just for this recipe. You won't believe how quick and easy these are to make! I bake these all the time for my kids, and it is often what I choose to bake when I need to take something to an event. You can cut them into any size squares you want, but when I bake them for my family, we like them large! Soooo good with a glass of milk.
Makes ~2 dozen
1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2-1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 350-F. Grease (or use PAM baking spray) a 9"x13" pan. Combine butter, brown sugar and vanilla. Beat well. Stir in flour, chocolate chips and nuts. Spread the mixture into the pan and bake for 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Let cool, then cut into squares. Do not over-bake!

Why This Blog?
Come in and make yourself at home. I'm so happy to be able to share my recipes here with you.
I bake mostly cookies, quick breads, muffins and scones -- sometimes pie, sometimes cake, but nothing too fancy. I prefer simple recipes that call for ingredients that I already have in my kitchen.
These are the recipes I will share with you. They come from family and friends, magazine clippings saved through the years, favorite cookbooks, and other blogs.
I'm so glad you came to visit. Enjoy your stay!
