Dessert Bars Recipes from AlansKitchen.comMakes 25 bars

Prep Time: 20 min.
Baking Time: 45 min.

Ingredients:

  • Crust Ingredients:
    • 1-1/3  cups all-purpose flour
    •    1/2  cup powdered sugar
    •    1/8  teaspoon salt
    •    1/2  cup cold butter
  • Topping Ingredients:
    •    3/4  cup sugar
    •     15  dried plums
    •       2  teaspoons cornstarch
    •    1/2  teaspoon baking powder
    •    1/8  teaspoon salt
    •       1  Egg
    •       2  Tablespoons lemon juice
    •       1  Tablespoon purple coarse sparkling or sanding sugar

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350-degrees F.  Line bottom and sides of 8-inch square baking pan with aluminum foil. (Extending foil beyond ends.)  Grease foil.

  1. In a medium bowl, combine 1-1/3 cups all-purpose flour, 1/2 cup powdered sugar, 1/8 teaspoon salt. 

  2. Cut in butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  Reserve 3/4 cup mixture. 

  3. Pat remaining mixture onto bottom of prepared pan.  Bake for 15 minutes.

  4. Meanwhile, place sugar, dried plums, cornstarch, baking powder and 1/8 teaspoon salt in processor bowl fitted with metal blade.

  5. Cover and pulse until dried plums are finely ground. 

  6. Add egg and lemon juice; continue processing 20 seconds to combine.

  7. Pour plum mixture over hot, partially baked crust; sprinkle with reserved crust mixture and coarse sugar.

  8. Continue baking for 30 to 35 minutes or until edges are browned and topping is set.

  9. Cool completely.  Lift bars out by overhanging foil and cut into bars.

Alan's Kitchen Tip
The fruit in this bar is dried plums, a new name for an old product, prunes. In French, prune means plum so both names are accurate. The best dried plums are still moist. If stored a bit too long, soak them briefly in hot water and then drain.p align="center">Page 1 of 1  More Recipes
