Gooey Butter Bars

These bars are a blank canvas for whatever topping you like. We piled on strawberries tossed with a little honey and minced ginger, but you could also try blueberries with a bit of finely shredded lemon peel or a simple glze made with powdered sufar and tangerine juice. Or skip the topping all together. These bar are just as good on their own.

Gooey Butter Bars

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 13x9x2-inch baking pan with parchment; set aside. For crust, in a medium bowl combine 1 1/2 cups flour and 1/4 cup sugar. Using a pastry blender, cut in 1/2 cup butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs (mixture will be dry and crumbly). Pat firmly into prepared pan; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl beat softened butter with an electric mixer on medium-high speed for 30 seconds. Gradually beat in the 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar. Beat in corn syrup, egg, and almond extract just until combined. Alternately add the flour and half-and-half, beating after each addition until just combined after each addition (batter may appear slightly curdled). Spread into crust-lined baking pan.
  3. Bake about 30 minutes or until center is just set. Cool in pan on wire rack. Use parchment to lift from the pan; cut into bars.
  4. In a small bowl toss strawberries with honey and ginger. Spoon over bars before serving. Makes 24.

I made these to have with fruit, but they are so good I keep going back for one more plain bar! You have to try these....they would be exceptional with toasted almond slices on top.
