MMMMMMMMMMM! Another sweet treat that I beg ya to find anyone who doesn't love ‘em!
Lets try making wonderful homemade dream bars, and peanut butter brownies too, that will knock your socks off. The very thought of eating all those super yummy mouthfuls makes me salivate.

I’m hungry, so let’s get right to baking this little bars cookie recipe!

Dream Bars Recipe Preparation:
First butter up a 9 by 13 inch square baking pan.

Preheat oven to 380 degrees, (DO IT NOW so your oven will be ready when you are.)

An’ make sure your oven racks are IN THE MIDDLE, (Why? Because Apple bar Cookies aren't too good when they turn out doughy on top, an’ burnt on the bottom, that’s why.)

Dream Bars Recipe Ingredients:

1/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
(Use butter, it tastes much better, you don't always need to worry about counting calories.)
1 -1/2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup plus 2 Tbsp. all purpose flour
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1 -1/2 cups shredded coconut
1 cup chopped nuts
Orange butter frosting (recipe below)

Dream Bars Recipe Directions:

In a large mixing bowl and electric mixer, beat butter and 1/2 cup of the sugar until creamy. With a fork, blend in 1 cup of the flour until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Press mixture firmly over bottom of a greased 9 by 13 inch baking pan, forming an even layer. Bake bottom crust in a 380 degrees oven for 10 minutes; then let crust cool in the pan, on a rack.

Wash and dry your mixer bowl. Place eggs in bowl and beat until light and lemon colored; then gradually beat in remaining 1 cup of sugar. Beat in the vanilla, remaining 2 tablespoons flour, salt, and baking powder. Stir in coconut and nuts until thoroughly combined.

Pour coconut mixture over baked crust, spreading evenly. Return dream bars to oven and bake for 21 minutes or until topping is golden; then let cool in pan on a rack for 12 to 20 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare orange butter frosting, if desired. Cut partially cooled dream bar cookie into bars ( 1 by 2 inches or so), but do not remove from pan. Spread frosting over dream bars and let cool completely in pan on rack. (Don't frost bars before cutting them, because if you do, frosting will crack when the dream bars are cut.) Store dream bars covered with plastic wrap.

This Dream Bars recipe makes about 25 big bars.

Grandma's Cookies and Tea

As I watched the sun sink low in the west, I reminisced about my grandma and how she loved the sunset. She would sit on the swing on the porch, eating one of her famous sugar cookies and sipping her cup of tea. She would watch the big, round, yellow ball kiss the horizon and softly say a prayer thanking God for another beautiful day.

However, during the day she did what she loved best. She would get out her recipe box and go through her cookie recipes to see what she thought would appeal to her loved ones. She knew that my favorite was oatmeal and raisin and my brother’s was brownies with frosting on them. My sister was partial to Grandma’s peanut butter cookies.

She would finally decide on which cookie she was going to bake that day. No matter what Grandma made they were always a hit!!

Oh how I miss my Grandma’s home baking. Grandma left her cooking sheets and cookie recipes for me, but somehow, no matter how hard I try, I can never get mine to taste the same as Grandmas! But I won’t give up because I am sure one day, my granddaughters will reminisce about their Grandma’s cookies and try to get them to taste as good as mine!

In case you haven’t heard … gourmet style cookies are to 2013 what cupcakes were for 2011! The cookie's somewhat dull, predictable reputation has undergone a complete makeover from glazed and filled to become the latest trend in the pastry scene. Artisan and “designer” cookies are popping up at local Farmer’s Markets, specialized bakeries and are even being featured on menus in restaurants, as a delightfully delicious dessert.
