A bit of a Texas kid's fun in every delicious bite! This easy bar cookie recipe provides a tangy twist on your average dessert. Serve up these tasty bites the next time you invite family and friends over and watch their faces light up!

What You'll Need

  • 2 1/4 cups firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, plus 2 tablespoons for coating
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 pound orange jelly candy slices
  • 1 cup finely chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar

What to Do

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the brown sugar, 2 cups flour, and salt. Add the eggs and oil; mix well and set aside. Coat the candy slices with the remaining 2 tablespoons flour, then cut the candy into small pieces and add to the batter, along with the nuts; mix just until combined. Pour the batter into a well-greased and floured 7" X 11" baking dish.
  3. Bake for about 50 minutes, or until golden and a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly. Before completely cooled, cut into squares.
  4. Place the confectioners' sugar in a plastic bag; put a few squares at a time into the plastic bag and shake to coat the bars. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container until ready to serve (because they dry out quickly).
