Calgary Nanaimo Bars
Total TimePrep: 25 min. + chilling
My recipe asks that you assemble the crust ingredients, pat them into a parchment lined 8 x 8 pan, and bake them at 350°F for roughly 10 minutes. Cool the crust and proceed as usual. I prefer that method, as I find I have had trouble making the crust on the stovetop. I have been making these for over 40 years. They never last around our house. I started making these when I was a young university student living in my parents' home. It was always my job to prepare these at Christmas.
Didn't last 24 hours in our house!

My grandma used make these all the time. This is the same recipe she gave me. To this day, it is one of my favorite cookies.
These are definitely 5-star bars! They disappeared so fast at a church potluck! My pastor is from Canada and grew up with these goodies.I was out of graham crackers, so I used Keebler striped shortbread cookie crumbs instead. Otherwise, I made it as written, including the chopped almonds. It was difficult to determine when the base reached 160 - my thermometer was slow, and I was afraid of overcooking it. But they turned out great.
These were a childhood Christmas favorite made by my Austrian aunt they were called vermino bars
These bars have been part of my Minnesota family for over 50 years. Ours are named Dairy Bars due to all of the wonderful butter used in them. Growing up on a dairy farm and then marrying a farmer makes these extra special.
These are excellent! I think the next time I make them, I will double the glaze on top.
