Have you ever tried something, and thought, "this tastes good," but not until you are done with it, do you realize how mouthwateringly delicious it really was? Once the food has left your mouth, you cannot stop thinking about it until you get seconds and thirds?
No, its just me?
Oh well, that is how I feel about these honey bars.
It is my mom's recipe, and on a recent trip home to the Great White North, known as Minnesota, she made these, and I was reminded of how much I LOVE this treat.
3/4 c. oil 2 c. flour
1/4 c. honey 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 c. sugar 1/2 tsp. salt
1 egg 1 tsp. cinnamon
1 c. powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
A few drops of milk
Mix the oil, honey, sugar and eggs together. Set aside, and mix the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon separately. Add dry ingredients to the first mixture. Mix well (it will be thick). Spread into a greased pan (I use a half-cookie sheet), and bake at 325 degrees for 15-18 minutes. Mix icing ingredients together; the consistency shouldn't be too thick, but not too runny either. I add the milk 1/4 tsp. at a time while stirring until I get it right. Ice while warm. Cut into squares after it has cooled. Then, place in pedestal cake stand, thereby, elevating its "fanciness." Tastes great with a good cup of coffee...
