I started by dumping some softened butter and 2 egg whites into a large mixing bowl.

I used an electric hand mixer to cream the two ingredients together.

When the egg whites and butter were well blended I dumped some icing sugar into the bowl.

I used the electric hand mixer again to beat in the icing sugar until all the ingredients were smooth and creamy.

Now I measured in the Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Flour Blend and some salt.

Using the electic hand mixer on low speed, I blended until a soft dough was formed.

To give these cookie bars a festive flair I dumped in some mixed chopped fruit and mini chocolate chips

I used a large wooden spoon to fold in the fruit and mini chocolate chips.

Then I greased a 10×15 inch cookie sheet and dumped all the cookie dough onto it.

Next I used a piece of plastic wrap, to protect my hands, and flattened the dough evenly in the prepared pan.    

I placed the cookie sheet into a preheated 325F oven.

It took 24-26 minutes to bake.  I removed it when it was golden brown around the edges and beginning to brown on the top.

After removing it from the oven I allowed it to cool slightly before I sliced it into bars.  

When completely cooled I transferred the Festive Shortbread Cookie Bars to a serving plate for everyone to enjoy!
