Toffee Bars

I tried out a different toffee square recipe from a vintage cookbook. This is similar to the type of recipe that has a bottom cookie layer and a sweetened condensed milk baking on top with a few mix-ins. This one doesn't have any mix-ins, but it does have a fudge frosting on top.  This cookie is a definite hit.

Ingredients for the cookie layer:

 1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup flour

Ingredients for the toffee layer

14-ounce can of sweetened condensed milk
2 Tablespoon butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon vanilla

Ingredients for the fudge frosting:

1 ounce of unsweetened baking chocolate
 2 Tablespoons butter
1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanillaCream the first three ingredients of the cookie layer.  Stir in flourPat in 9 x 13 un-greased pan. Bake 350 until lightly brown, about 15 minutes.
In the meantime, make the toffee layer:In a saucepan, combine sweetened condensed milk, butter, and salt.  Cook over low heat until butter is melted. Cook over medium heat until the mixture is thick and smooth,  about 5 minutes, Add in vanillaSpread the sweetened condensed milk mixture over the baked cookie layer. Cook for about 12 minutes or until the mixture is golden brown.In the meantime…Make the fudge frosting.In a saucepan, combine butter and unsweetened baking chocolate. Melt over low heat until chocolate and butter have melted. Take off the heat. Add powdered sugar and vanilla. Add just enough warm water, about a couple of tablespoons until it is a smooth consistency.Once the bars are done, spread the frosting while the bars are still warm.  Cut into bars while it is still warm.
