Tomorrow is my mother's birthday and strong thoughts of her bring memories of good smells in the kitchen and baking cookies. One of her favorite things to do. So I am baking "Tiny Toffee Squares" for art class this morning. yum. It was one of her favorites.

Tiny Toffee Squares

1 c. butter
1 c. dark brown sugar
1 egg
1 t. vanilla
2 c. flour
1-1/2 t. salt
1/2 # sweet chocolate, melted
chopped nuts

Cream butter and sugar. Add egg and mix well. Add vanilla, then sifted flour and salt.
Spread dough evenly in ungreased 10"x15" pan and bake for 25 minutes at 350 degrees.
Remove from oven and spread melted chocolate over at once. Sprinkle with chopped nuts.
Cut into 12 strips on the long side and six on the narrow side while still warm.

Sounds like a good recipe. That's funny too, I made one of my Mom's cookie recipe for Sunday. i never make these little wreath cookies, but some I just did in little rounds with the candied cherries on top- with short on time now.
