The word "NoŽl" means "Christmas" in French. Sometimes in English we see it spelled "Nowell".
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup chopped nuts
1/3 cup flour
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 beaten eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tube of green decorator icing with a writing tip
In a 9x9" baking pan melt butter or margarine. Stir together brown sugar, nuts, flour and salt; then stir in eggs and vanilla. Pour over butter in pan; do not stir. Bake at 350 F for 20 to 25 minutes. Sift the powdered sugar over top. Placed waxed paper under wire rack, immediately invert pan onto rack. Cool. Dust again with powdered sugar. Cut into bars. Write "NoŽl" on each bar with green decorator icing.
