First made these for "Heritage Day" in elementary school. I remember loving the simple flavor with cinnamon and nuts. I've since lost that recipe and was happy to find this one. Tastes the same as my memory. I believe that recipe instructed the bars to be cut into diamond shapes, so I carried that through with this version. Yum!

Wow, this recipe is wonderful and something to write home about, well if I wasn't home it would be. Thanks Laurie for such a wonderful recipe. I used black walnuts and as I say it was wonderful.
