Pecan-Crusted Mojito Bars
Ingredients
1 3/4
1
cup butter, cut into slices
4
eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/2
1/2
cup lime juice
2
tablespoons milk
1
tablespoon snipped fresh mint
1/2
teaspoon baking powder
1/4
teaspoon salt
 
Small fresh mint leaves, snipped (optional)
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 13x9x2-inch baking pan with foil, extending the foil over edges of pan; set aside. In a food processor combine the 1-3/4 cups flour, the pecans, and the 3/4 cup granulated sugar. Add butter slices. Cover; process with several on/off turns until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press crumb mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan. Bake for 20 to 22 minutes or until crust is light brown.
  2. Meanwhile, for filling, in a medium bowl whisk together eggs, the 1-1/2 cups granulated sugar, the 2 tablespoons lime peel, the lime juice, the 1/4 cup flour, the milk, snipped fresh mint, baking powder, and salt until combined. Pour filling over hot crust.
  3. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes more or just until filling is set and edges begin to brown. Cool in pan on a wire rack. Using the edges of the foil, lift uncut bars out of pan; cut into bars. Sift powdered sugar over bars. To serve, sprinkle with powdered sugar. If desired, garnish with additional lime peel and fresh mint leaves.
