Chewy Noels

This recipe that has been a family tradition for years.  We make several batches throughout the holiday season.  You know it's Christmas when someone bakes the Chewy Noels.

2 eggs slightly beaten

1 T vanilla extract

1 cup packed dark brown sugar
5 T AP flour
1/8 t baking soda
1/4 t salt
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

2 T salted butter... Do not use margarine.

Confectioners sugar to dust top of bars.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Add vanilla extract to eggs.

Mix dry ingredients well.

Combine dry mixture to egg mixture.

Line the bottom of a 9" square pan with parchment or wax paper.
Melt butter and coat bottom of lined pan completely with melted butter.

Add combined mixture to pan, trying to not mix in the melted butter.

Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean from the middle.

When done, immediately turn pan out onto wire rack, remove parchment paper from bottom and dust with confectioners sugar. 

Let cool, then cut into bars.

EAT! Make more...
