Cookie Toffee Bars

This bar literately melts in your mouth with an great crunch topping.  It is a easy recipe that can be cut up and wrapped for your Christmas tray.  That is season is coming right??  The whole family will love this treat.

1 c. (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1 c. light brown sugar (firmly packed)
1 egg yolk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. salt
2 c. all-purpose flour (or white whole wheat flour, which is what I use)

1 1/2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 c. chopped pecans
3/4 c. chopped Heath Bar or Heath toffee bits

For the crust:
1.  With an electric mixer or by hand, cream the butter and brown sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.  Beat in the egg yolk, vanilla, and salt.

2.  With the mixer on low speed, gradually add the flour and mix until just combined.  The dough will be stiff.

3.  Pat dough evenly into the bottom of a 9x13" coated with cooking spray.  Bake at 350 degrees until pale golden on top, about 15-20 minutes.

For the topping:
4.  Remove the pan from the oven and sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly over the crust.  Return pan to the oven for 1 to 2 minutes until the chocolate chips are beginning to melt.

5.  Remove the pan from the oven and spread the chocolate evenly over the crust.  Sprinkle the pecans and Heath bar toffee pieces evenly over the chocolate.

6.  Let cool completely in the pan.  Use a sharp knife to cut into small squares.
