Gale Heep | Tri-County EC
This simple dessert is a cross between a cookie, a bar and a candy. Heep recommends it warm with ice cream, but it’s just as good enjoyed simply with a cup of tea.
1/2 cup flour
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chopped walnuts
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees and coat an 8-inch square pan with nonstick spray.
2. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. In another bowl, beat egg until foamy, then stir in brown sugar and vanilla. Add flour mixture and stir until completely incorporated. Stir in walnuts; the batter will be thick.
3. Spread the batter into the prepared pan, using a greased spatula or spoon to spread to the edges, if needed.
4. Bake 18–25 minutes, until golden brown.
