Gooey Butter Bars

Gooey Butter Bars

(from "Rosie's Bakery Chocolate-Packed, Jam-Filled, Butter-Rich, No-Holds-Barred Cookie Book" by Judy Rosenberg)

1 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
8 tbsp (1 stick) unsalted butter at room temp
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 large egg

12 tbsp (1-1/2 sticks) unsalted butter at room temp
pinch salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
6 tbsp sweetened condensed milk
1/3 cup light corn syrup
1 large egg
1/3 cup flour

Preheat oven to 350° F.  Grease 9" square pan, or line bottom with parchment.

Sift flour, salt and baking soda together in a small bowl.

Using an electric mixer, beat butter, sugar and vanilla at medium speed until light and fluffy.  Add egg and beat until smooth.  Add flour mixture and beat just until blended.  Scrape bowl as needed.

Spread this dough evenly over the bottom of the baking pan.  Set aside.

For filling, using mixer cream butter, salt and vanilla together until light and fluffy.  Add condensed milk and beat at low speed until blended, then add corn syrup and mix until blended.

Add egg and beat about a minute and a half until the mixture is light and fluffy again.  Add flour and beat just until mixed.

Pour filling evenly over base, and bake until edges appear set but center is still jiggly, 25 to 27 minutes.  Cool to room temp, then refrigerate until set, about 4 hours.  Enjoy!

Her first cookbook has a really good white chocolate brownie, if you change your mind about those...
