Directions Step-By-Step

1
For the crust/topping:
Preheat oven to 350- grease a large 9x13 pan and set aside.
Combine flour, sugar, and salt in a food processor and pulse a few times to combine. Cut butter into 1/2 inch cubes and add to the mixture. Process until butter is evenly distributed and mixture is still crumbly. Reserve 1 1/2 cups for the topping and press the remaining mixture into the greased pan and bake for 12-15 minutes, and allow to cool for at least 10 minutes.

Sprinkle remaining topping over the top evenly and bake for 45-55 minutes. Allow to cool at least 1 hour before serving, otherwise it will be runny. Cut into bars
