BackstoryI decided to make these bars last weekend. It has been a few years since I have made them. They are a nice bar we enjoyed them. However, if I were to make them again I would only use 3/4 cup of brown sugar in the topping as they were a bit sweet. When looking for the Rhubarb Dessert I found this one, remembering they were good, decided to make them as well. In looking at the file draw I have of recipes, I realized there are a lot of recipes to put up....when you have been cooking for hmmmm to many years to say..one does accumulate a lot of recipes.
- 2 Cups all purpose flour (for pastry crust)
- 1/2 cup lightly, packed brown sugar (for pastry crust)
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1/4 cups soft butter
- 1/4 cup all purpose flour (for topping)
- 1/2 tsp. baking powder (for topping)
- 1/2 tsp. salt (for topping)
