If autumn gets you thinking about spice cakes and cookies like Momma and Grandma used to make, you're gonna love our Spice Bars. These combine that old-fashioned taste with the easiness of today. And wait 'til you smell 'em baking!

What You'll Need:
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg, well beaten
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
     
  2. In a large bowl, mix the oil, granulated sugar, and honey. Add flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt; mix well. Add egg and pecans; mix well. Press mixture into an ungreased 10- x 15-inch baking pan.
     
  3. Bake 20 minutes.
     
  4. Meanwhile, to make glaze, beat together remaining ingredients until smooth. Drizzle glaze over the top of the warm spice bars, cut into squares, and serve warm.

Just made these Spice Bars and what a waste of ingredients. Thought mix was dry,but decided to bake anyway. Very sharp knife wouldn't cut through--break up like peanut brittle was easier. The flavor is there,but recipe is going out!

Will adding another egg or 1/2cup of oil in place of1/4 or do both make this spice bar turn out better

I had my doubts about this recipe because there is so little liquid used. I think that I was right. I followed the directions and ended up with a bowl full of very dry crumbs. I added another beaten egg and then a tablespoon or two of water and got something that was workable. It baked up beautifully and was very tasty! I have run into recipes on other websites (and this one too) that seem to omit 1 ingredient or don't have the quantities just right. I wonder what the point to that is?

I also had trouble with this recipe ,I tried to make it twice, it smelled very good when baking. The bars came out hard as a rock the minute they started to cool. I used the same recipe but mine was from one of the Mr. Food cookbooks that my mom had for years
