5. Bake 10 minutes (see note) or until set (you can touch center and it's springy). Cool in pan on wire rack; sift with powdered sugar when completely cool. Cut into bars.

My Notes. Recipe said to bake the bars 10 minutes or untill set. My first batch took 20 minutes to set. I made them again, a double batch, and they took 30 minutes to set. I say start with 10 or 15 minutes, and check them. You can always add more time!
