Bessie's Trish's Aunt Millie's Nut Bars

See? The best recipes are third-hand. – Jean AAR

Here is a recipe that someone brought to work last year – she brought the finished product and was generous enough to share the recipe when everyone asked for it.  Enjoy!

– Bessie Makris


1 and 1/2 cups of flour
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon margarine
2 cups mixed salted nuts (you can use lightly salted if you want)
6 ounces butterscotch chips
1/2 cup of light corn syrup

Mix flour, brown sugar, and 1/2 cup margarine for the crust. Press
into a greased 9 X 13 pan.  Bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees.  Cool

After crust is cool, layer mixed nuts over it.  Melt butterscotch
chips, syrup, and remaining margarine and pour over top of the nuts.
Bake 10 minutes at 350 degrees.

Cool completely before cutting.  These freeze well.

I think I may have had these before. They are very sweet and delicious. I didn’t realize how easy they are to bake. Will have to give it a try.
