Baking My Way: Glazed Fruitcake Squares

I'm not a huge fan of fruit cake but this square is good! Still very fruit cake like but it's almost like a blonde brownie meets fruit cake. I'd make it again and it would make a great gift for those fruit cake lovers we all seem to know.

2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup margarine or butter, softened
1/4 cup brandy
2 eggs
2 cups All Purpose or Unbleached Flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups diced mixed candied fruit
1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts

1 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon margarine or butter, softened
1 to 2 tablespoons brandy

Heat oven to 375°F. Grease 15x10x1-inch baking pan. In large bowl, combine 2 cups powdered sugar, 1/2 cup margarine, 1/4 cup brandy and eggs; mix well.

Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup; level off. With spoon, stir in all remaining bar ingredients until well mixed. Press mixture evenly in greased pan.

Bake at 375°F. for 15 to 25 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool 1 hour or until completely cooled. 4 In small bowl, combine all glaze ingredients, adding enough brandy for desired drizzling consistency; beat until smooth. Drizzle glaze over bars. Let stand until set. Cut into bars.
