Espresso and cinnamon take basic bars to a whole new level. The coffee-flavored glaze is fantastic!

Bars

1
cup packed brown sugar
1/3
cup butter or margarine, softened
1
egg
1 1/2
cups all-purpose flour
1
tablespoon instant espresso coffee (dry)
1
teaspoon baking powder
1/2
teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon baking soda
1/2
cup water

Cinnamon Espresso Glaze

1
cup powdered sugar
1/4
teaspoon vanilla
1/8
teaspoon ground cinnamon
4
to 5 teaspoons cold espresso coffee or strong coffee

Steps

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Grease bottom and sides of 13x9-inch pan with shortening or spray with cooking spray; coat with flour. In large bowl, beat brown sugar, butter and egg with electric mixer on medium speed until blended, or mix with spoon. Stir in remaining bar ingredients. Spread in pan.
  • 2 Bake 20 to 22 minutes or until top springs back when touched in center.
  • 3 Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix all glaze ingredients with spoon until smooth and thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle over bars while warm. Cool completely, about 1 hour. For bars, cut into 8 rows by 6 rows.

Expert Tips

Espresso gives these bars a rich coffee flavor, but if you don't have it on hand, you could use regular instant coffee granules for a milder flavor.
