Comment on this recipe

"This is a favorite Christmas cookie in my family."

Ingredients

1 cup butter or margarine
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 or 4 milk chocolate bars (7/8 ounce bars)
1/2 cup chopped nuts (pecans or walnuts)

Instructions

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix butter, sugar, egg yolk and vanilla. Stir in flour and salt until well blended. Spread in a rectangular greased baking sheet about 13x10-inches, leaving about 1 inch all around. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes or until nicely browned.

Remove from oven. Immediately place separated chocolate squares over top. Let stand until chocolate is soft. Spread chocolate evenly over entire surface. Sprinkle with nuts. Cut while warm, serve when cooled.
