I don't know about you, but I'm ready for Thanksgiving.
I'm preparing myself with these bars. They're kind of like pecan pie... only with walnuts because I don't have any pecans. And with cake flour because I ran out of regular flour. And part light part dark corn syrup... because... you guessed it, I ran out. I'm kind of questioning myself on how these turned out okay, now...
The bars I made turned out MORE than just okay, they were wonderful and gone in 2 days. (Just a reminder, only 3 people live in my house). So I'll give you the Martha Stewart recipe I adapted mine from... and if you want a cakey-er dough and walnuts instead of pecans, just swap out the AP flour for cake flour and pecans for walnuts. Or make them her way and tell me how delicious those taste! Either way, you should make these!
If you make these following Martha's instructions, the crust will not look like this.
Make the filling!
Mix it all together.
Crush up your walnuts. Or pecans.
Drop some on the floor. But don't worry because your cat will eat them??? He's so weird.
Incorporate the rest of the ingredients.
Your topping probably won't look like this either. I added an extra tablespoon of flour.
