Pecan Cardamom Bar Cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg, separated
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon cardamom
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Butter
  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon milk, or as needed

 

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F (135 degrees C). Grease a 10×15 inch jellyroll pan.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together 1cup of butter, white sugar and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in the egg yolk and 1 tablespoon of vanilla. Combine the flour, cardamom and salt; stir into the batter until it forms a soft dough. Spread evenly in the prepared pan. Brush the top with egg white and sprinkle pecans over the top.
  3. Bake for 1 hour in the preheated oven. Prepare the frosting while the cookies bake.
  4. Melt the remaining butter in a saucepan over low heat until it starts to brown. Remove from the heat and stir in confectioners’ sugar until smooth. Stir in enough milk to achieve a drizzling consistency. Drizzle frosting onto the bars when warm. Cool, then cut into bars.
