Maple Syrup time

Actually it's kind of late for a maple syrup post but anyway...I just pulled out a can from our case of maple syrup today and tried a new dessert. We buy a case of maple syrup every spring but really we should buy two since one only lasts for half the year (If we're lucky!)

Maple Syrup Squares
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9 inch square pan.
Mix together:
1 cup flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
and pat into bottom of pan. Bake for 5-7 minutes, until light, golden brown. Let cool and spread over base:
1 cup walnut pieces
Turn oven up to 450.
Next mix in a small saucepan and simmer for a couple of minutes, until sugar is dissolved:
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 cup maple syrup
Let cool a little. Then mix into the cooled syrup:
2 beaten eggs
Stir in:
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 Tbl flour
Pour this mixture over the walnuts. Bake at 450 for 10 minutes. Turn heat down to 350 and bake for 20 minutes more. Cool and cut into squares.
