Line with brown paper, from a grocery bag, and grease again. Split mixture between pans. Start checking for doneness at 25 minutes. It's done when a toothpick, inserted in the middle, comes out clean. Let cool in pan. Lift from pan with paper. Cut into thin Bars (1 inch wide) while still warm. Turn upside down on cutting board and peel off paper. Make crosswise cuts at angles so bars are shaped like elongated diamonds. The points help make the bars more crusty and chewy. It’s slightly different but Grandma Wooden’s typed receipe card looked like this: Beat 2 eggs thoroughly and add 2 cups brown sugar, salt, 2cups chopped nuts, 1/4 tspn soda, 1cup flourand mix well. Add 1 tspn vanilla and bake 20 min. in med moderateoven. Cut in bars while warm. S. Hittenberger Sept. 9-1927. (believed to be her Mother-in-law: Sophie Caroline Christiane Hittenberger)
