Wrap up holiday gift giving with a rich and buttery toffee bar cookie.
cup butter or margarine, softened
cup packed brown sugar
cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
cup milk chocolate chips
cup chopped nuts, if desired
Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray. In large bowl, mix butter, brown sugar, vanilla and egg yolk. Stir in flour and salt. Press in pan.
Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until very light brown (crust will be soft). Immediately sprinkle chocolate chips on hot crust. Let stand about 5 minutes or until chocolate is soft; spread evenly. Sprinkle with nuts.
Cool 30 minutes in pan on cooling rack. For bars, cut into 8 rows by 4 rows.
Three bars (1.55 oz each) milk chocolate candy, broken into small pieces, can be substituted for the milk chocolate chips.
For easiest cutting, cut the bars while they're still warm.
