Last year, my then 5th grader was doing a report on the state of North
Dakota. He sent a couple of letters to Gov. Ed Schafer who was kind enough
to reply. My son asked for a kosher recipe from “Gov. Ed” and he sent back
this recipe which was simple enough for my son to make. He made several
batches for my older son’s bar mitzvah kiddush and they were gobbled up. In
gratitude for the recipe, my son sent a recipe for Cholent to the governor
since barley is a major crop in ND. Anyway, this is a really delicious bar
cookie.

Cream Shortening and sugar , add flour. Press in 13×9 greased pan, bake at
350 for 10 minutes.

Mix next 3 ingredients and add the rest and mix. Spread over baked
cookie-like mixture then bake at 300 for an additional 25 minutes. Cut
into bars and sprinkle with conf. sugar.
