Nut Smacks

Nut Smacks

1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
2 egg yolks
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup butter
1/4 tsp salt
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder

2 egg whites
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup chopped walnuts

First Layer: Crumble first 7 ingredients together well in large bowl. Press firmly into 9 x 9 inch ungreased pan. Set aside.

Second Layer: Beat egg whites until frothy. Add second amount of brown sugar 1/3 at a time, beating until stiff. Fold in nuts. Spoon over unbaked base, spreading evenly.

Bake in 350 degree oven for about 25 minutes until golden. Cool. Cut with sharp knife, dipped in hot water between cuts. Covering pan allows meringue to soften for easier cutting. Makes 36 squares.
