Nutella Bars


1/2 cup butter, softened

1/4 cup sugar

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/8 teaspoon salt



3 large eggs

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup Nutella

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a large bowl, combine crust ingredients on low to medium speed just until mixture is evenly mixed and moist.  (It will start clumping together.) Dump into an 8 x 8 inch baking pan that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.  Press mixture onto bottom of pan in an even layer. (Use wet fingers if mixture sticks to skin.)  Prick 6-8 times with a fork, then bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown around edges.

Meanwhile, beat the ingredients for the filling on medium speed until smooth.  When crust is done, pour mixture evenly over crust and bake for 25-30 minutes or until middle is puffed and just set.  Cool completely on wire rack before cutting into bars. 

*Increase sugar in filling by 1/4 to 1/2 cup for a sweeter bar.
