MIXED NUT BARS—Helen Cox--a friend of Lynne's

Helen brought these to a Christmas Enrichment. They are fabulous.

1½ cups flour
¾ cups packed brown sugar
¼ tsp. salt
½ cup plus 2 Tbs. cold butter, divided
1 can (11½ ounce) mixed nuts
1 cup butterscotch chips
½ cup light corn syrup

Combine flour, sugar and salt. Cut in ½ cup butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press into a greased 9x13 pan. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes.

Sprinkle with nuts. In a saucepan, melt butterscotch chips over low heat. Add corn syrup and remaining butter; mix well. Pour over nuts. Bake 10 minutes. Yield 3½ dozen
