    FLKeysJen's Note:

    In Nanaimo, Canada, close to 200 tubbers (in every type of craft imaginable) entered the fun "bathrub race" competition in 1967 and amazingly, 47 completed the 36 mile course to Vancouver's Fisherman's Cove across the straits of Georgia. An annual event for more than 40 years, the "Great RACE" still starts and finishes in Nanaimo harbor but now covers a much more grueling course and includes a week-long celebration. Cook time includes chill time.

      Truly outstanding. Not only are these super yummy bur they are also very pretty and just perfect for the holidays. Don't let the layers scare you off they aren't difficult and go rather quickly. If you have never tried a Nanaimo Bar you must, they have pretty much become the Canadian National Cookie Bar and can be made is a hundred different flavores. This is a really great bar and would be a perfect introduction for a first timer and a most welcome addition to the collection of any Nanaimo addict.

      Made this recipe pretty much as given, though I did make it with orange juice rather than the Grand Marnier! Still we (and our guests) had a great treat, and since I usually have frozen cranberries all year long, I'm keeping the recipe around! Definitely a winner!
