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
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.
