Recipe by SharleneW

A moist, soft cookie bar that has been a favorite of my family for years. I got the recipe originally from my kid's Grandma B.

Very, very moist and tasty. More like a cake than a "bar" to me, but whatever...quite delicious. I subbed 1/4 cup applesauce for 1/4 cup butter and baked for 30 minutes. Made too much frosting for my taste, but I'm sure I'll find another use for it! Thanks, Sharlene!
