This recipe was given to me by Mom,and she got it from a friend in 1968; so it's withstood the TEST of TIME! They have a cooky base, chopped nuts of your choice, and a brown sugar meringue topping. They just MELT in your mouth, and are so yummy, they came by the name easily!

Ingredients

  • FIRST MIX FLOUR, BAKING POWDER AND SALT

  • 1 3/4 c
    flour
  • 1 tsp

  • 1 stick
    butter, softened
  • 1 c
    granulated sugar
  • 2
    egg yolks, reserve whites
  • 1 tsp
    vanilla extract
  • 1
    whole egg
  • MIX THE DRY INGREDIENTS INTO THE BUTTER MIXER. THIS WILL BE A VERY STIFF DOUGH, I USE A STAND MIXER.

  • IN A SEPARATE BOWL BEAT EGG WHITES UNTIL STIFF, AND MIX IN BROWN SUGAR

How to Make YUMMIES, BARS, WITH BROWN SUGAR MERINGUE

Step-by-Step

  1. Grease a 9 X 9 pan, or small rectangular pan; Preheat Oven to 350 degrees.
  2. If you want to add chopped nuts, they can be placed in the egg white mixture or spread on top of the first layer, the cooky base.
  3. Spread the cooky dough in the pan, top with the nuts if desired, and spread the egg white mixture over all.
  4. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. This does get brown, so you need to check it, and it can get a crackled top which is normal. If you under-bake it, the cooky layer is soggy, so let it get brown, but not burned on top.Cool and then cut into small bars or squares.
  5. THIS RECIPE CAN EASILY BE DOUBLED, AND I MADE THEM IN A JELLY ROLL PAN WHICH HOLDS THE DOUBLED RECIPE.
    IT THEN CAN BE CUT INTO ABOUT 36 BARS.
