Davy Crockett Bars

I mentioned earlier in the week that Davy Crockett Bars are something I've been making for years, and my mama's been making for much longer than that. If I'm in a rush and need something sweet, this is it! This is seriously easy, and always a hit with everyone. (My brother's mother in law is always a fan, and she's one of the sweetest ladies in the world. I always want to stay on her good side. ;) I usually bring it to gatherings at my brother's place....)

One great thing about this is that it can be a one-dish dessert! The instructions say to mix the dry ingredients separately from the wet, then combine them, then press into the pan... truthfully, I always skip that part. I mix everything together right in the pan. Less dishes! Slightly more messy, it is a bit hard to keep it contained, but.... still easy. :)

Davy Crockett Bars

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
