Cinnamon Bars {52 Cookies in a Year – Week 8}

Ok…So the cookies have seized to exist around here.  The kids are actually tired of them!  What?  Yep, they are tired of them..So I have got to get to baking something else for all y’all out there.  So we are going to brownies and bars next.

This was easy to make and tastes so yummy!  Reminds me of fall while baking too because of the cinnamon.

What will you need?

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup butter(softened)
  • 1 egg, separated
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped mixed nuts

What do you do?

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly grease bottom and sides of 15X10X1 inch pan.  In large bowl, mix together sugar, egg yolk and butter.  Stir in flour and cinnamon. {I always bake bars and brownies in a greased foil lined pan for easy removal}
  2. Press into pan. 
  3. Beat egg white and water until foamy.  Brush over dough.  Sprinkle with nuts.
  4. Bake for 18 to 23 mins or until light brown.  Cut bars immediately and leave in pan.  Cool on rack at least 30 minutes.
