Spice It Up

Today I have a great recipe to share with you for Spice Bars. This is a recipe I got from my Aunt Dorene years ago after she brought them to a family function. A few things that I really like about this recipe: they are simple to make, the ingredients are common ones usually found in your pantry, and they taste so good! The name Spice Bars might make them seem like they are bursting with spice, but it is just from the cinnamon in them. It is not overwhelming, so don't let the name keep you from trying them. They have such a good flavor. I can really taste the honey and spice together and it's a tasty combination!

Spice Bars
3/4 c. vegetable oil
1/4 c. honey
1 c. sugar
1 egg
2 c. plain flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 c. chopped pecans ( I used 1/2 c.)

1 c. powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Mix first eight ingredients together with wooden spoon. Add nuts and stir until well blended. Batter will be stiff. Put batter in a 9x13 pan and bake at 350 for 25 minutes. While bars are cooking, mix powdered sugar, vanilla and just enough milk to make mixture smooth. Glaze bars while still hot. Cut into squares when completely cool.

If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.............................................
