Abby's Magic Bars

A couple of weeks ago I was looking for a dessert to take to a family gathering.  I wanted some kind of bar or brownie type thing.  I found this recipe and it looked good but that is not the reason I picked it.  I picked them because this is Pauley Perrette's recipe.  You might not know who she is but for watchers of NCIS you know her as Abby.  She owns a bakery in New York and this is their most requested recipe.  That is actually what made me want to make them.  I had to see what was so special that the people of New York kept requesting them.  They were good and an interesting take on the usual magic bars that you are familiar with.
These bars have a little of everything in them from cranberries to white chocolate to Reese's pieces.
Start with 2 cup plain flour in the food processor.
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar and a pinch of salt
Add 2 sticks cold butter that have been cut into pieces.
Pulse the food processor
Until the butter is incorporated
Press the flour mixture into a sprayed 9x13 baking pan.
Press out into the bottom.  Press firmly so it will stick together.  Place in a preheated 350 oven and bake for 25 minutes.
Take it out of the oven and let set for just a minute or two.
Measure out 3/4 cup dark chocolate chips
Sprinkle on top.
1 cup Reese's Pieces
Sprinkle on top.
3/4 cup white chocolate chips
Sprinkle those on top.
1/2 cup dried cranberries
Sprinkle on top.
3/4 cup coconut
3/4 cup chopped pecans
Sprinkle those around on top.
3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk.
1/2 cup evaporated milk
Pour that on top. Place back in the 350 oven and make for 10-15 minutes longer.
And enjoy.  Let the cool completely or even over night before cutting and they will cut much better.
