Mmm Honey Bars...

Jumping from this blog to that, I stumbled upon the most delicious sounding treat - honey bars drizzled with a sweet glaze. Perfect to pair with a warm cup of tea on a drizzly spring day in Oregon. The recipe didn't dissapoint, but instead of the sophisticated presentation I found online, Abby and I pressed the sticky sweet dough into our teddy bear demarle pan for a fun, kid friendly treat.

3/4 c. oil
1/4 c. honey
1 c. sugar
1 egg
2 c. flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon

Mix oil, honey, sugar, and egg together and set aside. Mix dry ingredients together. Add dry to wet ingredients and mix well (expect a thick, pasty batter). Spread into a greased pan* (the recipe suggested a cookie sheet). Bake at 325 for 15-18 minutes.

*We used a demarle silicone bake pan so we did not add any grease.

1 c. powder sugar
1 tsp vanilla*
milk as needed for consistency

*I did 3/4 tsp vanilla and 1/4 tsp almond for flavor

Ice the bars while still warm. Cut into squares once cool.

Hi and thanks for your comment on my MADE blog. Glad to hear that you're getting into sewing. I love it!!
It's probably difficult to explain how I did the sleeves on the Seaside dress (it's not hard to make, just hard to explain :) ). I got the idea from Amazing Mae's website:
and she used the Simplicity 5695 pattern. She also used this tutorial for a peasant shirt that she lengthened:
Maybe that will help you!
