Calgary Nanaimo Bars
Total TimePrep: 25 min. + chilling
Didn't last 24 hours in our house!
My grandma used make these all the time. This is the same recipe she gave me. To this day, it is one of my favorite cookies.
These are definitely 5-star bars! They disappeared so fast at a church potluck! My pastor is from Canada and grew up with these goodies.I was out of graham crackers, so I used Keebler striped shortbread cookie crumbs instead. Otherwise, I made it as written, including the chopped almonds. It was difficult to determine when the base reached 160 - my thermometer was slow, and I was afraid of overcooking it. But they turned out great.
These were a childhood Christmas favorite made by my Austrian aunt they were called vermino bars
These bars have been part of my Minnesota family for over 50 years. Ours are named Dairy Bars due to all of the wonderful butter used in them. Growing up on a dairy farm and then marrying a farmer makes these extra special.
These are excellent! I think the next time I make them, I will double the glaze on top.
These are very rich but most loved them. I had a little trouble trying to figure out cooking crust (1st layer) to 160 degrees since I (& most?) do not have a candy/food thermometer. A better description of that part of the recipe should be noted. These bars are not for anyone watching the fats & sugars in their diet.
What can I use in place of cocoanut .? Only thing I do not have on hand.
