These shortbread bars are inspired by the hit TV show, TED LESSO!


  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 11/4 cup powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar packed
  • 1 large egg
  • 13/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar, optional


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit and line an 8” square pan with foil. Lightly grease it with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl cream together the butter, powdered sugar, and brown sugar, beating on medium until smooth. Add the egg and stir on low to combine. Scrape the sides of the bowl, and add the flour and salt, stirring on low until the mixture comes together into moist clumps. Do not overmix. Dump the mixture into the prepared pans and use barely moistened fingertips to pat out the dough. If desired, sprinkle with a tablespoon of granulated sugar. Bake in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes (it took mine 38 minutes) or until the edges are set and the top is barely beginning to turn brown. Allow to cool completely prior to cutting and serving.
