  4. Pour into prepared pan and bake at 250 degrees F (120 degrees C) for 50 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool. Cut into bars and roll in confectioners' sugar.



Really really really good. I added about two tablespoon of corn starch to measure 2 cups of flour because I didn't have cake flour. A good substitution - I also used pecans and added about 1 tsp...

These bars are basically just flour, brown sugar, and butter so the texture was grainy and heavy. It was super dense and had no depth of flavor, it was just an overly sweet lump.
