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. Feel free to use just one type of nut or mix the different types of nuts you prefer. I am thinking these would be good with pistachios or cashews too!

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter

Make the filling

Step 1

In a heavy saucepan, heat the brown sugar, honey, and 1/4 cup butter until completely dissolved and it begins to boil. Boil for only 1 minute.

Step 3

Pour the mixtures over the crust and spread well.

Step 4

Bake at 350° until nut mixture is bubbly hot, about 12-20 minutes depending on your oven.

Step 5

Cut using a sharp knife. Serve and enjoy.

These bar cookies are perfect for a cookie exchange party. Make them for holiday celebrations and office parties. All nut lovers enjoy these delicious bar cookies.

  3. They look good enough to eat right off the screen!
    I do like all the nuts in there, but am having trouble with teeth at the moment, so I’d either have to take a long time eating, or eat a slice whole! 😉
