My mom made these when I was a child, and now my children love them just as much as I did!
Love these moist, flavorful bars. This recipe will definitely be added to my faves!
This recipe is excellent. I made it for a fish fry at our church, and they were gone very quickly. Everyone commented on how good they were!!
I took these to work last week and they were LOVED by all! I used margarine in place of butter, unsweetened applesauce & light sour cream. I also omitted the raisins and pecans because I didn't have them on hand. I didn't have allspice either so I used 1/2 t. ginger and 1/2 t. nutmeg. Next time I will probably cut the sugar in the bars to 3/4 c. and possibly cut it in the frosting too I thought the frosting was too sweet, but my co-workers said it was great!. This is definitely a keeper!
My mom used to make these when I was a child. I was so happy to find the recipe again!They are just as delicious as I remember them. My kids love them as much as I did.

This year, my grandson Clark is 3 years old, so I wanted to make some cookies that he would love to eat and would find to be fun, too. These adorable Powdered Sugar Snowmen Cookies are just the ticket.
Chocolate’s complex flavor brings out the sweetness and tanginess of fruit, mellows the heat of peppers, and comes alive when introduced to a little bit of salt. The real question should be, “What can’t you dip in chocolate?” More ...
