The first sweet delight is a bar… a Butterscotch Meringue Bar. This recipe comes in part from Cooks Illustrated. This is a new one that looked interesting and very tasty.


Line a 13 x 9 pan with foil and spray it with PAAM. Mix 2 cups flour, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in a bowl.

In a mixer, blend two sticks of butter, 1 cup of brown sugar, two large egg YOLKS, then after a few minutes add 1 T of water and a splash of vanilla. After everything is thoroughly mixed gradually add your flour mixture. When it’s mixed place in pan and spread evenly.

Open up a bag of chocolate chips and spread on top of the batter evenly. Press them down gently to make your layer even.

Then take your left over egg whites. Whip them up in your mixer until you see peaks, then add another cup of brown sugar. Once it’s all mixed together pour evenly on top of the chocolate chip layer. Place in your oven for 35 minutes until golden brown on top. It won’t be stiff when you pull it out but rather wobbly. That is ok!

Cool for a few hours and then cut and devour singing a Christmas carol.
