Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oven to 325° F. Butter an 8-by-8-inch baking dish and line with parchment, leaving an overhang on the two long sides; butter the parchment. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, and ½ teaspoon of the salt in a medium bowl; set aside.

  • In a separate bowl, beat the butter and sugar on medium-high until light and fluffy, 3 to 4 minutes. Beat in the egg and vanilla until combined. Reduce speed to low and gradually add the flour mixture, mixing just until combined (do not overmix).

  • Spread the batter in the prepared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes.

  • Remove the pan from the oven and scatter the toffee pieces on the top. Return to the oven and bake until the toffee is melted, 1 to 2 minutes more. Sprinkle with the remaining ½ teaspoon of salt. Cool completely in the pan.

  • Holding the paper overhang, lift the bars out of the pan and transfer to a cutting board. Cut into 16 squares.

  • Storage suggestion:Keep the bars at room temperature, between sheets of wax paper or parchment in an airtight container, for about 5 days.
