  • maple bar cookie recipe
    I am looking for a recipe for maple bar cookies. They are dark brown when finished, not as dark as brownies, but darker than blondies. They have a texture like brownies; chewy on the inside, with a paperthin crust on top. My grandma put walnuts in her maple bars, but there were no raisins or coconut. I'm not sure if they were baked in an 8x8 or 9x13 pan. If anyone has a recipe they think might be it, I would be so grateful. Thank You-Melissa in Northern Michigan

    Hi Plumcrazy, In the "Maple Pecan Oatmeal Bars" the ingredients list 1 tsp. baking powder - but in the directions it list baking soda. Which one is correct? I'd like to try these sometime.

    I just bumped this recipe from the archives but I am sure it is the baking powder.

    Thanks plumcrazy,
    I made the change and it's saved. Sorry it took me so long to reply, had an illness in the family and forgot I had this on hold :) Have a great week-end.
