"This is very moist and delicious cookie bar that has been in my family for years. Always roll in granulated sugar and store in a container with a tight lid."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

I loved these!
I found that the texture is more like a quick bread than a bar cookie.
This is - quite simply - gingerbread! Sorry, but this should not be classified as a bar cookie. It is, however, good, moist, delicious gingerbread! Will serve it cut in squares with a lemon or orange sauce. I used 1 C brown sugar & 1 C Splenda and subbed Canola oil for shortning. Turned out perfect!
Everyone in my family really liked your recipe. I thank you for letting me read it.
Oh my deliciousness! I love cloves, so had to give this a try. I substituted nutmeg for half of the cinnamon but other than that I kept to the recipe. Amazing! It does have a bit of a gingerbread quality, so the kitchen smelled like Christmas when I was baking. What a present- these bars were so good, I didn't even get around to rolling them in sugar, they were all eaten too quickly! :)
These are good - the texture is sort of between a bar cookie and cake. They're a bit heavy on clove for my taste. I think next time around I'd probably cut the clove in half and maybe add a vanilla/powdered sugar drizzle instead of the granulated sugar. Possibly a thin cream cheese frosting. But as they are I can see how they'd be a great one for gifting - they would travel well in a tin.
