It is time for my very first Vintage Recipe Thursday. Hope you enjoy it.
Today's recipe is from 1958, Good Housekeeping's Book of Cookies...
Aren't the graphics wonderful?
OK, here we go. Today our recipe is for:
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. With electric mixer at medium speed, thoroughly mix 1/4 cup soft butter or margarine with 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed, and 1 cup sifted all-purpose flour;
Press into greased 12 in. X 8 in. X 1 in. pan; bake for 15 min.
(My pan was a little larger then that, so my bars will be slightly thinner.)
Next mix 2 eggs, unbeaten, with 1 cup brown sugar until very light and fluffy.
At low speed, beat in 1 tsp. vanilla extract, 1/4 tsp. salt, 1 cup corn flakes, 1 cup flaked coconut, and 1 cup chopped walnuts (I used pecan, just 'cause I love 'em) just until mixed.
Spread over baked layer.
Bake 20 min. Cut into bars while warm. Makes 3 1/2 doz.
Yum! They are chewy and crunchy and brown sugary...
the only thing I would do different next time is add chocolate chips. Oh yeah.
OK, so once again, you will need:
1/4 cup softened butter or margarine
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup sifted all-purpose flour
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup corn flakes
1 cup flaked coconut
1 cup chopped walnuts (I used pecans)
I hope you enjoyed my very first Vintage Recipe Thursday! I am off to work on a little tutorial, plus get a few more new wares finished for the shop.
Happy Day to you!
