Taste of Home’s Holiday & Celebrations Cookbook 2001 is where I found the original recipe. Of course, I made changes to the recipe to suit my family’s preferences.
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- ¾ Cup unsalted butter , softened at room temperature
- ¼ cup unsalted butter
- ½ cup packed light brown sugar
- 2 Tbsp. honey
- ¼ Cup Half & Half
- ⅔ Cup each; slivered almonds, chopped walnuts and chopped pecans
- Line a 9x9 or 7x11 pan with foil and spray well with non-stick spray.
- Blend together the flour and sugar in a mixing bowl.
- Cut the ¾ cup of softened butter into the flour mixture, until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
- Press the flour mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan until it is nice and firm.
- Bake at 350° for about 10 minutes.
- In a heavy saucepan, heat the brown sugar, honey and ¼ cup butter until completely dissolved and it begins to boil. Boil for only 1 minute.
- Remove from heat and stir in the Half & Half and nuts.
- Coat the nuts well with the caramelized mixture.
- Pour over the crust and spread well.
- Bake at 350° until nut mixture is bubbly hot, about 12-20 minutes depending on your oven.
- Allow to cool on wire rack and then place in refrigerator for about 30 minutes to set before cutting.
- Cut and serve. I used a diamond shape cookie cutter as a template but cut the bars with a sharp knife.
