Caramel Nut Bars


Caramel bars are made with brown sugar and pecans.

Cook Time: 50 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs, separated
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts


Lightly grease a 9-inch square baking pan.

Sift flour and baking powder into a bowl. In a medium mixing bowl with a hand held mixer on medium speed, cream 1/2 cup butter with 1 cup granulated sugar; beat in egg yolks and continue to beat until light and fluffy. With mixer at low speed, blend in flour mixture, alternating with milk and vanilla. Mix just until blended. Turn batter into prepared pan; spread evenly. Bake caramel bars layer at 350° for 30 minutes. In a small bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks begin to form. Gradually beat in brown sugar; stir in nuts. Spread over the top of the warm crust. Return to oven and bake 20 minutes longer, or until puffed and lightly browned.

Cut into bars while still warm. Cool caramel bars in pan on wire rack.

Makes 16 caramel nut bars.
