Here are 4 of my very favorite dessert bars. I love how quick they go together, no fussing around scooping out cookies! Always a hit or parties and cookouts or for a day that just needs a bit of something sweet.
If I can make bars instead of cookies I almost always do. They are a time saver and are just as good, if not better than cookies!
These all are tried and true vintage recipes straight from our Grandma’s recipe collection to you! I hope you find your family’s new go to dessert bar recipe.
Sweet and tangy my personal favorite. I always make these for Easter. I really love these Lemon Bars and so does everyone that tries them! The shortbread crust with the tangy lemon filling is a winning combination.
Be sure to foil line your pan. The lemon wants to stick if you don’t.
Delicious chewy oatmeal bars. This recipe has lots of room for you to customize with what you like best or make due with what you have on hand. I like to be indulgent and eat these for breakfast! Maybe adding raisins would make them healthy!
This recipe makes a very large batch! I made a half batch and had plenty to share. These would be ideal for a bake sale or as part of dessert trays.
The mystery must be, how can something so simple be so delicious? We love these bars. With no fancy ingredients these are easy to make for no special reason! Mystery Bars taste like a visit with Grandma! That old fashioned comfort we all love.
Coconut is one of my very favorite dessert ingredients so of course Mystery Bars are one of my personal favorites.
Another great vintage recipe! Cornflakes add a really good crunch and flavor. Make a batch of these for your next potluck! These remind me of 7 Layer Bars my Granny used to make. Not as much work but a similar rich flavor.
So there they are! What one are you going to make first?
