Butterscotch Treats

This makes up quick for a nice butterscotch flavored treat.

First Layer:

1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 egg yolks (save whites for second layer)
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup butter/margarine
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder

Crumble all ingredients together well. Press firmly into 9X9 inch ungreased pan. Set aside.

Second Layer:

2 egg whites
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup chopped walnuts

Beat egg whites until frothy. Add brown sugar 1/3 at a time, beating until stiff. Fold in nuts. Spoon over unbaked first layer, spreading evenly.

Bake in 350 degree oven for about 25 minutes until golden. Cool. Cut with sharp knife, dipped in hot water between cuts. Makes 36 squares.

** Covering pan allows the topping to soften for easier cutting.
