Bake a Batch of Bars for Dessert

Nov 21, 2016 03:31AM ● Published by Family Features

(Family Features) With baking season here, it’s time to turn on the oven, bring out the recipes and enjoy the spicy aromas wafting from the kitchen – a promise of delicious treats ahead.

Bars, whether they are cookie, cake or even pie, are the easiest to make and serve, especially when there’s a crowd clamoring for dessert. You might have a pumpkin or sweet potato bar in your repertoire, but Aunt Nellie’s suggests Carrot Crumble Bars for a change of pace.

Grab a jar of glazed, sliced carrots, slightly sweet and spicy, and ready to enjoy in numerous ways. They are also a great time-saving step for this delicious dessert. They’re cooked and ready to eat, so just puree the entire jar of carrots and add the remaining four ingredients. That’s it for the tasty filling, which is nestled between a crunchy oat crust and topping. Start to finish in under an hour, most of the ingredients are probably already in your kitchen. Plus, they can be made a couple of days in advance and refrigerated until serving time.

The family can enjoy them for a yummy weeknight dessert or make them company-perfect topped with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream, sprinkled lightly with pumpkin pie spice. Find this and other recipes from Aunt Nellie’s jarred vegetables at AuntNellies.com.
