Happy holidays everyone! First off, I want to thank everyone who voted for my Syrian refugee essay! Thanks to all of you my essay has moved onto the final round, and will now be viewed by the judges. I could have not it made this far without all of your votes 🙂
I have recently done a blog collaboration with Amber, at https://soulofstories.wordpress.com, and she found this delicious recipe for cookie bars! They looked delicious, and you can find the original recipe here (Butter Baking)
Be sure to look at other recipes on this blog, they all look delicious. Now for the most part I followed this recipe, with just a few alterations.
To make this gift from the heavens you’ll need:
- 110g unsalted butter, melted (1/2 cup)
- 1 egg
- ¾ cup brown sugar, packed
- ¼ cup coconut sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- ½ cups plain flour
- 1 cup coconut flour
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ½ – 1 tsp sea salt, to taste
- ½ – 1 cup Nutella, to taste
- ½ cup condensed milk (about half a can)
- Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Put parchment paper in an 8×8 baking dish.
- In a medium bowl, combine the butter, egg, both sugars, and vanilla. If you don’t have a mixing bowl, melt the butter first and this will make stirring it all together very easy. If you do have a mixer, just make sure the butter is room temp. and then put it all into the mixer.
- In a separate bowl, mix together both flours, baking soda and salt. Then slowly add this into the bowl with the wet ingredients.
- Once you have mixed this together, you have made the cookie dough base! Take about 3/4 cup of the dough and put it to the side. Take the rest of the dough and put it into the baking dish.
- Now is the part where you add the Nutella. In all honestly I didn’t measure this part, I just put dollups in the pan until I was satisfied. (While making this recipe it doesn’t all that tasty, but trust me, it is).
- Next, stir up the condensed milk in the jar before pouring it on top. I did about 3/4 of the can, or until I covered the entire dish. Top it all off with the remaining cookie dough. I only reserved a 1/2 a cup of the dough when I tried this out, but I recommend that you reserve about 3/4 of a cup of dough.
- Bake this dish in the oven for 30 min. or until the dough is golden brown. The milk gets caramelized and the Nutella gets smoother and it just turns into a gooey masterpiece.
Be sure to check out Amber’s version of this recipe, she is also the one who originally found this! I hope you are all enjoying the end of the year.
