Cafe Au Lait Bars
from the KAF Cookie Companion
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
3 tbsp espresso powder, or less if desired
1/4 cup heavy cream
Preheat the oven to 325. Lightly grease a 9x13 inch pan. Set aside. Place the eggs in a large bowl.
Beat until light and thick. Add the sugar, and beat until glossy and thick. Stir in the flour and salt. Set aside 1 1/2 cups of batter.
Add the cream and espresso powder to the remaining batter.
The coffee batter. YUMMO! (And I am not a coffee person!)
Spread the coffee batter into the prepared pan.
Top with the remaining white batter and "swirl" them as best as you can.
Top with chocolate chips. Looks so cute! bake for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool before cutting.
