Sour Cream Coffee Cake Bars

1 1/2 c. flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
Pinch salt
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. butter or margarine, softened
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 c. sour cream

1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. chopped walnuts (optional)
4 tsp. cinnamon

Base: In a bowl combine flour, baking powder, soda and salt. In another bowl, beat sugar and butter until smooth and creamy. Add eggs and beat until mixed. Stir in vanilla. Gradually blend in flour mixture, alternately with sour cream. Spread half in prepared pan. Set aside.

Topping: In a bowl mix together sugar, nuts and cinnamon. Sprinkle half evenly over base. Spread reserved batter over nut mixture. Sprinkle remaining topping evenly over batter. Bake in preheated oven 350* for 40 minutes or until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Place pan on a rack to cool completely, then cut into squares.

Use a 9x9 inch square cake pan well greased.

TIP: A wet knife does a smoother job of cutting fresh bars, squares or brownies.
