I thought I would try this recipe that came over my email from the Betty Crocker website. I am always up for a new recipe. It was a pretty cool evening and the boys and a friend were watching a movie so I decided to bake. The great thing about this recipe is that the ingredients are things that I already had on hand. After I took it out of the oven I thought it was going to be under-baked however as it cooled it had a chewy, soft and very delicious texture. I also didn't use the glaze. I wrapped some for the boys' friend to take home and took some to work the next day... Everyone loved them. Yeah
recipe from Betty Crocker
2 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup butter softened. (I used cold butter and just sliced it into tablespoons before beating)
1 1/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp cinnamon
Glaze - I didn't put any glaze on mine.
1 cup powdered sugar
1 to 2 Tablespoons milk
1/4 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 350F. Spray or grease bottom only of a 13x9-inch baking pan with cooing spray. In small bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside
In large bowl, beat butter with electric mixer on hight speed until creamy. Beat in sugars. Gradually beat in eggs and vanilla into sugar mixture until combined. On low speed, add dry ingredients until well combined.
Spoon half the batter into pan; spread evenly. Sprinkle cinnamon-sugar mixture evenly over batter.
Dollop teaspoon size amounts of remaining batter evenly over cinnamon-sugar mixture.
Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
(Glaze) - In small bowl, stir glaze ingredients until smooth and thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle over bars.
Cut and serve
