Brown Sugar Shortbread Bars

Brown Sugar Shortbread Bars created by Dreamer in Ontario

A light and tasty treat from Cooking LIght. The cooking light recipe said that this makes 24 bars. I disagree, I cut my bars big enough for 12. Not as light, but more than a bite.

  • 1. Weigh or lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, cornstarch, and salt in a small bowl; stir with a whisk.

  • 3. Preheat oven to 325°.
  • 4. Place dough on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray; press dough into an 8 x 5–inch rectangle about 3/8-inch thick. Pierce entire surface liberally with a fork. Bake at 325° for 25 minutes or just until set and edges are golden. Cut shortbread into 24 pieces. Cool completely.

    These turned out nice but it was a little dry so I had to add a little water to bring it together. Got 12 pieces. Thanks.

    What a delicious variation of shortbread. They are quick and easy to make, too. I prepared these exactly as directed and cut them into 24 pieces. Made for DECEMBER Bevy Tag.
