Magic Clementine Bars

Print Email

1 cup butter, melted
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons flour (I use white whole wheat flour)
1/2 cup powdered sugar (extra for dusting)
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
5 tablespoons Clementine juice
1 teaspoon grated Clementine rind
2 eggs, beaten

Preheat oven to 350°F

Combine melted butter with 1 cup of the flour and powdered sugar in a mixing bowl. Blend until dough just comes together. Pat the dough into the bottom and slightly up the sides of an 8 inch square baking pan and bake until lightly golden, about 18-20 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool.

Next, in another bowl whisk together the granulated sugar, baking powder and 2 tbsp. flour. Whisk in the Clementine juice, grated rind and eggs and blend well. Pour mixture over the baked crust and bake again until set, about 20-25 minutes, or until an inserted knife comes clean. When cool, lightly dust with powdered sugar and cut into bars.

They’re called Magic Clementine Bars because they seem to do an instant disappearing act.
