Vanilla Walnut Bars


This is an easy recipe for vanilla walnut bars. It's a modification of one by Diana Rattray.

Melt the butter and allow it to cool. Crush the walnuts into fine pieces. In one bowl, combine the flour, salt, and baking powder. In another bowl, beat the egg for 2 minutes until foamy. Mix the brown sugar, butter, and vanilla extract in with the egg. Mix the two bowls together. Fold in the walnuts and mix well. Using a fork or stiff spatula, spread this evenly into a buttered square pan. Bake in a square pan at 180°C for 20 minutes, or until the top is brown. Let cool in the pan before cutting into squares for eating.
