Pretzel Shortbread Bars

I love this stupid cartoon.


Love these Pretzel Shortbread Bars, too. It’s got the salty-sweet thing going on with the sweetness coming from the buttery shortbread layer.

Pretzel Shortbread Bars


3 1/4 cups salted miniature twist pretzels
1/2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
4 oz unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg yolk


1. Preheat oven to 325℉. Coat a 4 14-by-13 1/2-inch fluted tart pan with a removable bottom (you can buy the pan here) with cooking spray. Line bottom with parchment.

2. Pulse 1 3/4 cups pretzels in a food processor until powdery. Transfer to a bowl. Stir in flour and baking powder.

3. Transfer remaining 1 1/2 cups pretzels to food processor, and pulse a few times until coarsely chopped.

4. Beat butter and sugar with a mixer on medium speed until pale and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Reduce speed to low, and beat in egg yolk, then pretzel-flour mixture, until combined. Mix in 1/2 cup chopped pretzels from the food proceesor.

5. Press dough evenly into pan. Top dough with 1/4 cup chopped pretzels, pressing slightly; discard any remaining pretzels.

6. Bake shortbread until pale brown and firm in the center, 25 to 30 minutes. Transfer pan to a wire rack, and let shortbread cool for 1 hour.

7. Remove shortbread from pan, and cut into 1/2-inch-wide rectangles using a serrated knife.
