Christmas + food = happy.

Time for baking!
I made my blog private (for a minute + got distracting putting in emails), well I didn't realize how many people come here for recipes + since it's that time of year + we all know I LOVE to bake I'll be posting quite often this month some fun new favorite dishes!

The first up is a cookie bar with what tastes like brown sugar cotton candy on top. A new Christmas time tradition for us for sure.
It's different + I just loved it...

1/2 c. butter, soft
1 c. white sugar
3 eggs, separated
1 1/2 c. flour
1 t. baking powder
1/4 t. salt
1 c. chopped nuts (opt)
1/2 c. chocolate chips
1 c. mini marshmallows
1 c. brown sugar

Preheat oven to 350. Cream the butter and white sugar. Beat in 1 egg + 2 yolks. Mix flour, baking powder + salt together. Stir dry into the wet ingredients. Spread into a 9x13 glass dish. Sprinkle with nuts, chips + marshmallows. Beat remaining 2 egg whites until STIFF, fold in the brown sugar carefully. Spread over top of cake. Bake for 30-40 minutes.
