Golden Almond Bars

Dessert Bar Recipes

Originating in the Midwestern United States, dessert bars, or simply bars or squares, are a type of American “bar cookie” that has the texture of a firm cake or softer than usual cookie.

Often dessert bars are one of the more popular types of desserts at bake sales and are often made for baby showers, bridal showers, birthdays, and weddings.

I am looking for some help. I have an old, old recipe that used to be served at the HSOSF Convent on feast days. They would like us to make it for the 175th anniversary of the order on 7-2-19. The Sisters all remember it, but don't know how to make it. It is a hand written recipe that says:

Heavenly Hash 5# margarine 25 eggs (whole) 1 can crushed pineapples m. 10 can 20 cups p sugar 2 1/2 cups chopped nuts

The only instructions listed are: Beat sugar & m. until creamy

Nothing more. I have scoured the internet for any hints. They described as a very rich pudding like dish that was yellow.

Do you have any suggestions? Thank you
