Baking My Way: Cherry Chocolate Brown Sugar Shortbread Bars

This bar is seriously good! I sold a lot of it over Christmas and I will for sure be making it again! It's very soft and has a nice sweetness and of course cherries and chocolate? How could you go wrong!


1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/3 cup butter, softened
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
3/4 cup All Purpose or Unbleached Flour
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup chopped/drained maraschino cherries

Cherry Glaze
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon maraschino cherry liquid

Chocolate Glaze
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1 teaspoon shortening

In large bowl, combine sugar, brown sugar and butter; beat until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and egg; blend well. Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup; level off. Stir in flour until well blended.  Add chocolate chips and cherries. Press into bottom of greased 8'' pan.

Bake at 350 for 17-22 minutes or until lightly golden. Cool for 15 minutes or until completely cool.

Meanwhile, make the glazes. For the cherry mix all cherry glaze ingredients until smooth. For the chocolate glaze melt the ingredients in a small sauce pan over low heat, stir constantly.

Drizzle glazes over the bars; let stand until set. Cut into bars.
