Holiday Eggnog Bars
If you love Eggnogg then these bar cookies will be a tasty treat. They are easy to make and store in the refrigerator. They keep for a short time but that shouldn't be a problem because they will go quickly. They remind me of a custard pie.
This is another recipe and pic from my small Christmas magazine of Betty Crocker's.
1/2 cbutter, softened
1 call purpose flour
5 mediumegg yolks
1 1/4 cwhipping cream
1 Tbsprum or 1 teaspoon rum extract
1/4 tspground nutmeg
1/2 tspground nutmeg
How to Make Holiday Eggnog Bars
- Heat oven to 350 F. Line bottom and sides of 9-inch square pan with foil, leaving 1 inch of foil overhanging at 2 opposite sides of pan. IN small bowl, stir together butter, 1/2 sugar and the flour. Press in bottom and 1/2 inch up sides of foil-lined pan. Bake 20 minutes.
(I tried a 9 by 13 inch pan and the bars are too thin. I would stick with the 9 inch square pan.)
- Reduce oven temperature to 300 F. In small bowl, beat egg yolks and 1/4 cup sugar with electric mixer on medium-high speed until thick. Gradually beat in cream, rum and 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg. Pour in baked crust.
