A favorite family recipe from my mom. Sweet, gooey and a big hit with who ever you share it with. You can reduce the amount sugar called for in this recipe if you like and/or substitute a non-gluten flour. Cut into pieces while bars are still a little warm and then continue to cool them before serving. Enjoy. Lonna Nachtigal - DonnaLonna Kitchen / KHOI fm 89.1 Community Radio
