Candy Bar Bar Cookies
- 1 cup butter
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 1/2 cups flour
- 5 3-oz candy bars
- 1/4 cup sugar
Prepare 9x13 pan.
Mix the butter and the sugar together in a bowl. Stir until creamy.
Add the egg and stir it in thoroughly. Mix in vanilla extract and salt.
Add the flour in half-cup increments, mixing after each addition. The dough will ball up like piecrust.
Pat half the dough into the bottom of your prepared pan. Smooth it out.
Unwrap the candy bars and place them on top of the dough.
Pat the remaining dough on top of the candy bars, distributing as evenly as possible.
Use the back of a table fork to make cross-hatches on the top of the dough, the way you do with peanut butter cookies.
Sprinkle the 1/4 cup of sugar over the top of your pan as evenly as possible.
Bake at 350 F for 25 minutes. The bars should be slightly brown round the edges and still quite white on top.
Cool in pan on rack.
