Bourbon Maple Bars

You all know my love of maple - I couldn't resist posting this one.

Bourbon Maple Bars
1 c Unbleached AP flour
1 ts Baking powder
1 c Unsalted Butter, softened
1 c Light brown sugar, packed
2 Eggs
1 ts Vanilla extract
1 c Maple syrup
4 tb Bourbon
1 c Pecans or walnuts, chopped
1 c Confectioners' sugar
2 tb Maple sugar
2 tb Bourbon

Preheat the oven to 350F. Lightly butter a 13 x 9 baking pan.
1.Sift together the flour and bakng powder, set aside.
2.In a large bowl, cream the butter and brown sugar with an electric mixer until light. Gradually beat in the eggs and vanilla until blended.
3.Combine the maple syrup and bourbon, and then add in a slow, steady stream, beating gently until blended.
4.Stir in the flour mixture until blended. Add the pecans or walnuts, stir to blend.
5.Spread the batter in the prepared pan. Bake for 35 minutes, or until the edges begin to pull away from the sides of the pan. Cool on a wire rack, and glaze the bars while still warm.
6.For glaze, sift the confectioners' sugar into a small bowl. In a separate bowl, stir together the maple syrup and bourbon. Add the liquids to the confectioners' sugar, stirring until smooth. Drizzle the glaze over the warm bar cookies, spreading it into a thin, even layer. Cool thoroughly before cutting into bars.
