  Pat mixture over foil on bottom of prepared pan; bake 20 min or until

  Make peanut-brittle topping: In heavy med saucepan, combine brown
  sugar, corn syrup, butter and heavy cream; over med heat, bring to
  boiling, stirring.  Cook, stirring constantly, until butter melts and
  mixture is smooth.  Stir in peanuts.
  
  Spread peanut-brittle topping mixture over cookies in pan; bake  15
  min or until topping is brown and bubbly.  Remove pan from oven; cool
  cookies slightly.  Using ends of aluminum foil, lift cookies from
  pan; cut crosswise into thirds.  Cut lengthwise into 14 strips;
  remove cookies from aluminum foil.  Cool cookie "fingers" completely
  on rack.
  
  Line another wire rack with waxed paper.  In top of double boiler
