I'm not much of a dessert person, but toffee bars are straight up delicious. Not to mention, way easy to make! We made some Sunday night, and it was mm-mmm, good! Recipe below.
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup margarine
1 large egg yolk
2 cups flour
1 tsp. vanilla
Mix together. Put in greased cookie sheet. Press down. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. While hot, sprinkle 2/3 or 3/4 cup chocolate chips. Spread to cover. Sprinkle 1/2 cup finely chopped nuts, if ya want. Cut at once in squares of desired size.
Also, bits of random:
Did you know you're not supposed to melt butter the whole way when baking? I never did it when it said soften, but otherwise, I would melt away! Apparently, that's a no-no. Who knew?
And, when you make cookies, you should take them out and let them sit on the pan before they're completely done. The pan is so hot it keeps cooking them! No joke! I couldn't believe it either!
What random cooking/baking tips do you have?
