ISO: 50's-60's Bisquick "Walnut Chews" bar cookie

toodie jane | Apr 21, 201108:18 PM     8

I am missing my walnut chews recipe--the first recipe I ever collected at about age 10. My best friend's mother and our Brownie Scout leader, Mrs Wilson, regularly made these, and I loved them, so she gave me the recipe. I made them often as a young married, but not for years now. I thought of them tonight, but looked and my recipe is GONE!

Any hounds have this Mid-Century Bisquick recipe in their collection? It used eggs beaten with brown sugar, Bisquick, milk (?) and lots of english walnuts. Because it called for Bisquick rather than flour, b. pdr, and shortening, I'd have to wing it, but PLEASE if you or your family has this recipe, I'd sure be obliged!

They were sweet, chewy and WAL-nutty! Quite a soft, chewy texture, with a shiny semi-crispy surface like brownies have (from the beaten eggs and sugar)butterscotch-y flavor with the brown sugar. Not particulary thick, I think they were made in a 7x10 pan, and cut into small bars.

thanks
