There were very few things my friends and I would eat from our high school cafeteria. This was one of the few. It was a small town, so someone could always get the recipe from someone. Hope you like them!

These were okay but had a dry, cakey texture. I wonder what size cookie sheet was too be used - mine was 11X15 & the bars were really thick. I also had to fiddle with the frosting, adding extra pb & milk to get the flavour & consistency right.

I'm so excited!! I have literally been searching for this recipe since high school. I was telling my kids about these the other day and I decided to try to find it one more time so I can share this lunchroom fav with them. Thank you for posting this.

A delicious memory of my childhood. I take a bite, close my eyes and remember a simpler time. I had no trouble with this recipe, frosting turned out delicious and spread fine on the warm bars.
