Iced Georgia Squares


A cross between shortbread and a cake. That's about the best I can describe these little cookie/cake squares from a recipe by Paula Deen. I liked them but Michael thought they were too "powdery".

At any rate the recipe given in her book was about half of what is actually needed for the size pan she uses. I've doubled the recipe here so that it should fit nicely in a 9x13x2 pan.


Ingredients:

1/2 cup sugar
1 cup butter
2 eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. cream of tartar
couple pinches of salt

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13x2 inch pan and set aside. Cream together butter, sugar, and egg. Sift together dry ingredients and slowly add to wet. Pour batter into pan and bake for 12-14 minutes. Cool and ice.

Icing:

2 cups powdered sugar
8 tbls. butter
1 tsp. Vanilla
Small amount of milk

Combine sugar and butter and add vanilla. Add just enough milk to reach desired consistency. Pour onto baked batter. Cut into squares.
