These are super easy to make and taste oh so good! Similar flavor to Almond Roca.......
1 cup butter or margarine
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts
Cream butter, brown sugar and vanilla. Mix in flour, 1/2 cup chocolate chips and 3/4 cup nuts. Press into the bottom of a greased *15 x 10 inch pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 23-25 minutes, or until light golden brown. Immediately sprinkle with 1/2 cup chocolate chips. When soft, spread with a knife to frost. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup nuts. Cut into squares while warm.
* I remember my Mom struggling getting the cookies out of the pan and having a very crisp perimeter edge that she would cut off every year.....Once I took over I ran into the same issues....so this year, I finally figured out some solutions...First, I cooked my batch for 23 minutes (versus the 25-30 minutes the recipe called for); Second, you can see from the pan, I chose to line it with parchment paper. I didn't lose a single cookie this year and they came out of the pan so easily!
I sprayed the pan with cooking spray first, then put the parchment paper down, then lightly sprayed the parchment again before pressing the dough into the pan.
