Traditional Swedish bar cookie type treat, ready to enjoy in 30 minutes with a cup of coffee. I like to substitute pecans but thats a personal preference.

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!
