Danish Cinnamon Bars

"I love making bars because they don't require all the work of shaping of cookies. Just press the dough in a pan, bake, and cut into bars. A delicious holiday treat and can be made ahead and frozen."

    How can these be cooked ahead then frozen will they have to be thawed out or can they be placed in the fridge

    seems like decent recipe but no way will the dough cover a 9x 13 pan more than a 1/4 inch thick so i used a 8x8 pan which yielded a half inch product . i think maybe not melting the butter would give a better result. they were heavy.

    I really liked these. I was craving something cinamonny and these are made with staples in any kitchen. I topped them with a browned butter/maple frosting. It made them pretty rich but man oh man are they good. For something without nuts they taste like they are loaded with them.

    These were just okay for us. They were fairly dry and bland. The addition of a glaze helps a bit.

    Didsx3 is right: This recipe does need improvement. I added a second egg, and that solved the dryness problem - without it, I think the bars would have been extemely dry. (After reading Didsx3's review, I didn't try the recipe as is.) I also added a generous sprinkling of sliced almonds after liberally sprinkling granulated sugar on top - that worked out well and made for a very tasty flavor. Finally, I didn't bake quite as long as the recipe calls for; only about 17 to 18 minutes instead of 20. I was very pleased with the way my version of the bars turned out, and the people I served them to liked them a lot.
