Christmas Toffee-Pecan Bars

These toffee-pecan bars are perfect for Christmas gift giving, taking to a Christmas cookie exchange or a Christmas office party.

Be sure to take copies of the recipe with you, because you will get requests. It’s quick and easy to make and may become one of your stand-bys.

1 cup butter (softened)
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg yoke
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1 (6-ounce) package Heath Bits (2/3 cup in recipe, remaining on top)
½ cup finely chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350° F. Cream butter until smooth and creamy. Blend in sugar, egg yolk and vanilla. Mix in by hand flour, 2/3 cup Heath Bits (toffee chips) and nuts. Press into ungreased 15 ½ x 10 ½-inch jellyroll pan.

Bake 18 to 20 minutes until lightly browned. Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle with remaining Heath Bits. Cool slightly, but cut while still warm. Makes 2 dozen bars.
