Dream Bars–oh MY! #20

December 20:

My dear friend Margaret (a real live Swedish woman who actually serves and enjoys lutefisk!) brought me a plate of these Dream Bars in November, and I nearly hurt myself, because I can’t stop eating them. There is NO self-control involved here. If you have that one Christmas party yet that you need to bring treats for, this is it. They are easy, and they will cause a a stir! Margaret brought me another plate of Dream Bars this afternoon, along with the recipe. So I share that with you, but not the bars, because, um…..we’ve somehow misplaced them all, don’t quite know what happened to them….ahem…


Dream Bars:

First: Mix 1/2 c. butter with 2 TBSP brown sugar and 1 c. flour. Spread in buttered 9×9 in. pan and bake 12 minutes at 350ºF.

Next: Mix the following:

  • 2 heaping TBSP flour
  • 1 1/2 c. dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. baking powdeer
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 1 c. walnuts, chopped fine
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

Pour over first baked mixture. Return to oven and bake 25 minutes more.

Remove from oven and allow to cool completely. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.

  1. A friend gave me a bushel of unshelled walnuts in Nov. and I cracked and shelled everyone. After reading Dream Bars recipe, I know I will put some to good use. Nice, cheerful website you have!
