This week I was browsing some Foodie blogs and I came across a recipe called Iced Georgia Squares from Sugar Pies. Looking at how simple the recipe was I had to try them. I get a another shot at making my own frosting. These bars are suppose to be a cross between a shortbread and cake. If I read the post right it is a Paula Deen Recipe.
I decided to make these tonight and share the recipe with you all. Thanks Sugar Pies for sharing the recipe on your blog. If you haven’t visited her blog before you might want too. She shares some really wonderful looking recipes.
Iced Georgia Squares
- 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
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 13 x 2 inch pan and set aside. Cream together sugar, butter, and eggs. Sift together dry ingredients and slowly add to the wet ingredients. Pour batter into pan and bake for 12 – 14 minutes. Cool and Ice.
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 8 tablespoons butter
- 1 tsp vanilla
- small amount of milk
Combine butter, sugar and vanilla. Add just enough milk to reach desired consistency. Pour onto bars and cut into squares.
Well I wasn’t sure if I was to melt the butter when I made the frosting and I did. Then it seemed to runny so I kept adding more and more powder sugar. We shall see what happens after the cake sits for a bit yet. I can’t wait to try it. It tasted a little floury to me. It was good though. Not sure I would make it again though.
