Recipe Tips

- Cream of tartar is a white acidic powder used as a leavening agent in baked goods. It is also used in candies and frostings for a creamier consistency. It is sold in the spice and flavoring section of the baking aisle of the supermarket.

- For easy clean up and cutting, line pan with aluminum foil, leaving an overhang on both ends. Spray with no-stick cooking spray and lightly flour the foil. When bars are completely cool, lift out of pan using ends of foil. Cut into bars.
