All my family loved this bar!! I liked it because it was easy to make with ingredients in my pantry. It is delicious plain or with a lemony glaze, topped with a bit of candied ginger. I have to take a dessert to a local church lunch this week, this will be perfect! Thanks for a great recipe Aroostook!
