Plantation Bars

I thought I’d include a photo of my humble abode for this recipe.

Yeah.  Anyways.  Back to reality.

Plantation Bars

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup sugar

1 egg

1/4 cup molasses

2 1/4 cups flour

1/4 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. soda

1 1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 cup sweet milk

1 cup chopped nuts

1 cup mince meat

Cream butter, add sugar gradually, and beat until light.  Add beaten egg, mix well, then add molasses.  Soft flour with dry ingredients and add alternately with milk to butter mixture.  Add chopped nuts and mince meat.  Spread batter 1/3 inch thick in shallow pan.  Bake in a moderate oven (350F.) for 15 to 20 minutes.  Cut in bars 3 inches long and 1 1/2 inches wide.  Makes 4 dozen bars.
