Ingredients

  • 1 cup flour
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ½ cup powdered milk
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup butter - cut into cubes
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup condensed milk
  • ½ cup cashew nuts - chopped

Instructions

  • Line a square (8x8") pan with parchment paper and set aside. Preheat oven at 180°C/350°F.
  • In a bowl, combine flour, sugar, powdered milk, baking powder and salt. Mix well.
  • Add butter and cut into the flour mixture until small crumbs form.
  • Add the egg, egg yolk and vanilla extract and mix using a fork or spatula until well combined. It will form a sticky dough.
  • Grease the lined pan with oil or butter. Transfer the dough into the pan and spread evenly.
  • Place the pan on middle rack and bake for 10 minutes.
  • Remove from oven poke holes with a fork. Pour the condensed milk evenly on top and sprinkle with chopped cashew nuts. Bake for another 10 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  • Let it cool down a bit then chill in the freezer for 10-15 minutes before cutting into bars.
  • Use a sharp knife and cut into desired shape and size.
