Citrus Honey Bars

Prep Time: 2 Hours
Yields: 24 Bars

These Citrus Honey Bars are perfect for back-to-school time. Give your children a special treat in their lunchboxes or reward them with an after-school snack. If you do not have honey, feel free to substitute 1 cup sugar.

Ingredients for Crust:

  • 1¾ cups flour
  • 2/3 cup powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • 12 tbsps softened unsalted butter (1½ sticks) cut into 1-inch pieces

Lightly grease a 13” x 9” baking dish and line with parchment or wax paper allowing edges to come over sides. In a food processor combine dry ingredients. Mix on low speed 15 seconds. Add butter and blend 10 seconds, and then pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle mixture into lined pan and press firmly into an even layer with slightly-raised sides to hold filing. Refrigerate 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 350°F. Bake 20 minutes or until light brown. Remove crust from oven and reduce temperature to 325°F.
