The holidays are always a nice time for me to break out our own black walnuts. I didn’t think we’d have a good crop this year because of the drought but I was wrong. When they started falling out of the trees, it wasn’t good if you were under them. I’ll be cleaning and cracking all winter!
These cookie bars are a little rich and indulgent. A small cookie goes a long way!
- 1/2 cup Dark Brown Sugar
- 1 cup All Purpose Flour
- 1 stick Butter
- 1 cup packed Light Brown Sugar
- 2 whole Eggs, beaten
- 1/4 teaspoon Salt
- 1 teaspoon All Purpose Flour
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- 1 1/2 cup Flaked Coconut
- 1 cup Black Walnuts, chopped
Preheat oven to 375 F.
Sift the 1/2 cup brown sugar with the 1 cup flour. Cut in the butter until crumbly. Press into a lightly greased 10 x 10 pan and bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
For the second layer, mix brown sugar with the eggs, salt, flour, vanilla, coconut and black walnuts. Stir well. Pour over the baked layer and return to the oven. Bake for 20 minutes. Allow to cool. Cut into small bars and enjoy!
