I found the recipe for this in my mom's recipe box on a note card...I don't know where she got all her recipes from and she can't even remember. These are really good and next time I wanna try throwing in some chopped apple.
- 1/2 cup shortening (Crisco)
- 2 cups packed brown sugar
- 2 tsp. vanilla
- 2 large eggs
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup chopped nuts (I used walnuts)
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. salt
Heat oven to 350 F. Grease bottom and sides of 13 x 9 inch cake pan. Melt shortening in saucepan over low heat. Put brown sugar in a medium bowl. Add melted shortening to this and mix. Next add vanilla and eggs and mix. Stir in remaining ingredients. Spread in pan. Bake about 25 minutes till done. Cool slightly, then cut into squares while warm. Enjoy!
