1/2 cup butter, softened

1 cup flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
1/4 cup butter
2 T flour
pinch of salt
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine 1/2 cup of butter, 1/4 cup of brown sugar and 1 cup of flour until mixture is crumbly. Press the mixture into a 8 inch baking pan. Bake the crust for 10 minutes. Remove and set aside.
In a saucepan, combine the maple syrup, brown sugar and walnuts and bring mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium low heat for 5 minutes. Then remove it from heat and stir in butter until melted.
In a bowl combine the eggs, flour and salt. Add egg mixture to the maple syrup mixture and stir to combine. Pour mixture over the baked crust and then bake for 25-30 minutes or until dessert is set. Cool completely before cutting into small bars.
