Bartlett Inn's VJ's Cranberry Turtle Bars



2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup cold unsalted butter


To make base, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 15 x 10 inch shallow baking pan (one inch deep) with foil, leaving a 2-inch overhang on the 2 short sides. Butter all 4 sides (but not bottom). Blend flour, brown sugar, and salt in a food processor, then add butter and pulse until mixture begins to form small (roughly pea-size) lumps. Sprinkle into baking pan, then press down firmly all over with a metal spatula to form an even layer. Bake in middle of oven until golden and firm to the touch, 15 to 17 minutes, then cool in pan on a rack.




Makes 3 dozen bars.
