A pie in a cookie sheet! Excellent company or pot luck recipe for mincemeat lovers everywhere. My family loves these squares at Thanksgiving and Christmas but they are good any time of the year. Good with a scoop of ice cream and some butterscotch sauce on top if you dare. Or a dollop of whipped cream is nice too.
An easy to make one-pot recipe from a 1997 hand-written recipe card. A nice combination of dates and nuts with readily available baking supplies. You can substitute raisins for the dates if you like. You can wrap each square individually in foil paper and freeze them for when you need a treat! One square is only about 160 calories and 5 grams of fat per serving.
A great make ahead dessert from Kelloggs website that is best made at least one week before serving. After cooling, wrap carefully and store in airtight container at room temperature. Instead of using cooking spray to prepare the pan, I used Recipe #78579. It's a terrific pan release mixture to keep on hand for greasing pans for everything like cakes, muffins, and even casseroles too.
I buy most of my produce at a local famer's market run by our tiny Amish settlement. one summers day my Amish friend Cecily was selling these bars.. You'd never guess the main ingredient was Zucchini. My fourteen year old sister begs me to make these bars everytime she has friends over
I was sort of let down by the Applebees copycat recipes for their Maple Butter Blondie. Applebees' blondie is nothing like a traditional blondie and is more cake-like and even sometimes dry (all the better for the ice cream and maple sauce). The blondie recipes I found online were always butter-laden with fudgy textures, which I don't care for. So I made this recipe.
Second: most of the maple sauces are brown sugar recipes, but Applebees' sauce is white. So I used cream, white chocolate chips and white sugar to keep that coloring. Unfortunately, the maple extract has caramel color, so it darkened the sauce a little bit, but it was still good in my opinion.
I hope you like it.
