Walnut Dainties Make a Man-Pleasing Dessert Favorite

“This is a Canadian recipe that I have used for many years,” Betty Maithonis writes. “It is a big favorite, especially with men. It is better if put in a tin and saved for a few days, if you can keep it that long.”

WALNUT DAINTIES

3/4 cup butter, softened

1 1/2 cups brown sugar, packed
