English Toffee squares

I decided to warm up the kitchen with some baking on this chilly day. Snow is still on the ground, it’s wintery wonderland out there.


English Toffee Squares

1 C butter or margarine, softened1 C sugar

1 egg, separated

2 C flour

¾ t ground cinnamon

¼ t ground nutmeg

1 C chopped pecans or walnuts


In  large bowl , beat butter and sugar until creamy. Add egg yolk; beat. Reserve egg white. Add flour, cinnamon and nutmeg to creamed mixture; blend thoroughly. With your hands, spread batter in a greased 15” x 10” baking pan. Beat egg white lightly. Brushing lightly, cover dough with egg white. Sprinkle nuts on top, pressing into dough. Bake at 275° for 45-50 minutes, or until firm when touched. Remove from oven and immediately cut into 1 1/2” squares. Let cool in pan on rack. Makes approximately 5 dozen pieces.

Sorry the photos are in reverse order. I’m still not used to this platform. The squares turned out deliciously and the kitchen did warm up nicely.
