Mixed Nut Bars (Makes 4dozen)

When my friend, Anne Reuther, who lives in New Berlin, Wisconsin published the Franke Family cookbook she included this recipe for an outstanding bar cookie featuring mixed nuts. The entire recipe can be created in less than 30 minutes and the results are mouth-watering.

1 and 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
3 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 cup butterscotch chips
2 cups mixed nuts (10-12 ounces)

1. Using a pastry blender or two forks, combine the flour, powdered sugar and the 1/2 cup softened butter until mixture is the texture of coarse cornmeal.

2. Press mixture into an ungreased 9x13-inch baking pan. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 10 minutes.

3. While the base crust is baking, combine the 3 tablespoons butter, light corn syrup and butterscotch chips in a small saucepan and heat until ingredients are melted and combined.

4. When base is done, drizzle the chip/syrup mixture over the base and spread to evenly cover. Sprinkle with mixed nuts.

5. Return to oven and bake for 5 more minutes at 350 degrees.

6. Cool thoroughly and cut into bars.
