GRANNY'S KITCHEN: Eagle Brand Graham Bars

 I forget who gave this book (published in 1979) to me, either my wonderful mother or my grandmother, but I decided to browse through it the other day and found a simple looking dessert recipe.  I had to remember that this was the time before microwaves, and it was still and easy dessert!

The first thing to do is to take 14 graham crackers (24 halves) and crush in a bowl. Add a small package of chocolate chips (really, it asked for a small pkg rather than so many cups or ounces!) and a can of Eagle Brand Milk (this is the sweetened condensed milk, NOT evaporated milk).  Let it set for half an hour to soak up the sweetened milk.

 After it has set for half an hour, press into a buttered pan.  I forgot to butter this batch, but it came easily enough from the pan.
Bake for 350* for 20 minutes.

This picture doesn't look much different than the 'raw' above, but it is now a 'bar' and can be sliced.

We really did enjoy these!  When sliced, we rolled in powdered sugar. We ate them as we cut and rolled them, so once again there is not a photo of the final product. :)

Mark is now asking for another graham cracker dessert that I make with Kool-aide powder. I will have to make another post for this dessert.  Maybe I'll create a challenge for myself: make several posts on desserts made with graham crackers!
