My photo
My favorite memories have all centered around friends and family enjoying a meal together! It might have been a special holiday or a celebration, or it might have been dinner with friends at a great restaurant. I hope you will enjoy some of my favorite recipes and take time to fellowship with those seated at your table. You might make a memory to last forever!

Spice Squares

Fall is in the air and it is time to start doing more outside activities!  Since my boys were little, they have been requesting Spice Squares for every camping trip!  I tend to make these yummy bars more during the fall, probably because of the comforting smell of cinnamon.  But, Spice Squares are delicious all year!  Make some for your next hike in the woods or tailgate party!

Spice Squares

1 cup sugar
3/4 cup oil
1/4 cup honey
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 egg
2 cups flour

Combine all ingredients, except flour, and mix well.  Carefully add flour and mix until combined.
Place in 9 x 13 pan or a cookie sheet with edge. 
Bake in 350 degree oven for 20 minutes or until golden brown.

Prepare icing while bars are baking.

1 cup powdered sugar
1 1/2 Tbl. mayo
1 Tbl. water

Mix well and spread over bars while hot.
Yes, you read it right: Mayo!  Trust me...you can not taste it

Batter will be very thick.

Mix icing while bars bake.

Bars will "poof" up while baking,
but will fall when you ice them.

Icing will harden as the bars cool.

Spice Squares~~Enjoy!
