DirectionsMix the first three (wet) ingredients together thoroughly.Add dry ingredients to the above and mix with hand mixer.Bake in a 350 degree pre-heated oven for 25-30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.Allow to cool completely.Once bars are cooled, combine softened cream cheese, softened butter and powdered sugar in bowl.
Add 1 t. vanilla and cold milk as needed until icing is spreadable. I use a hand mixer to blend my icing.OPTIONAL:
I like to chop up some pecans or walnuts and sprinkle on the top of my icing. Some like to actually blend the nuts into the icing. It's up to you!
