  • 2 1/3 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 3/4 cup butter cubed
  • 1 egg lightly beaten

  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 6 tbsp butter cubed
  • 2 tbsp heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup chopped pecans toasted
  • 1 cup roasted and salted almonds chopped
  • 1 cup roasted cashews chopped
  • 1 cup roasted and salted pistachios chopped

Instructions

  1. Preheat Oven to 375 F.
Crust
  1. Line bottom and sides of a 9x13-inch baking pan with parchment paper. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt; cut in 3/4 cup butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. (this can be done by hand.)
  2. Stir in egg until blended (mixture will be dry).
  3. Press firmly into prepared pan. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool completely on a wire rack.
Nut Mixture
  1. In a heavy saucepan, over medium heat, bring the honey, brown sugar and 1/4 teaspoon salt to a boil; stir until the mixture is dissolved. Boil without stirring for 2 minutes.
  2. Add 6 tablespoons of butter, cubed, and whipping cream.
  3. Return to a boil; cook and stir for 1 minute.
  4. Remove the pan from the heat; stir in pecans, almonds, cashews, and pistachios. Spread over crust, gently flattening with a spatula if needed.
  5. Cut into 2-inch squares, then cut each square into triangles. Makes 48 bars.
