Gold Medal Flour

Ingredients

Bars

  • 2 1/4 cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup very finely chopped pecans
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

Topping

  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Line 8-inch square pan with foil, leaving foil overhanging at 2 opposite sides of pan; spray foil with cooking spray. In small bowl, mix flour, pecans, baking powder and salt; set aside.
  • 2
    In large bowl, beat softened butter, granulated sugar and 1/2 cup powdered sugar with electric mixer on medium speed about 1 minute or until fluffy; scrape side of bowl. Beat in egg and vanilla. On low speed, gradually beat flour mixture into butter mixture until well blended. Spread in pan.
  • 3
    Bake 32 to 37 minutes or until light brown on top and edges. Immediately sprinkle 2 tablespoons of the powdered sugar over top. Cool completely, about 1 1/2 hours.
  • 4
    Remove bars from pan by lifting foil; peel foil away. Cut into 8 rows by 8 rows. Sprinkle remaining 2 tablespoons powdered sugar over top of bars before serving. Store in airtight container at room temperature.

  • To easily line bottom of pan, tip upside down, and form foil around bottom and sides. Flip pan over, and place foil insert inside pan for a perfect fit!
  • To soften butter, cut in small pieces, and leave at room temperature. A faster method is to microwave butter in 5-second intervals, turning the butter frequently so butter is softened but not melted.
