ISO-Dream Bar recipe-not cake mix, not chocolate chips

LJS | Feb 18, 2013 12:16 PM

Growing up (In SW Ontario) Dream Bars seemed to be everywhere, certainly in retail bakeries like Woman's Bakery or Hot Oven or The Little Pie Shoppe (Toronto, Etobicoke).

This is a bar cookie: with chopped cherries (glace? maraschino?), coconut (flaked?) and nuts (walnuts?pecans?). They sat on a (shortbread?) crust. Some places frosted their Dream Bars with pink frosting. But they were plenty sweet without.

I have a real hankering for this treat of yesteryear. But all my Google searches end in one of two choices: adulterated cake mix or something with chocolate chips.MY dream bars do not contain chocolate!

I know, I know, I could just leave that ingredient out, but that would clearly leave the rest of the proportions wrong.

Anybody know this bar and can supply me with the recipe? Thanks in advance!
