Cinnamon Coffee Bars

I like this because it contains ingredients you are likely to have in the house. I have made this more times than I can count for a family of 7.



  • 1/4 cup soft shortening, butter or margarine
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup hot strong coffee
  • 1-1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup seedless raisins
  • 1/4 cup chopped nuts


Cream together shortening, brown sugar and egg. Sift together and stir in the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Blend in the raisins and nuts. Bake at 350 degrees F for approx. 30 minutes.

This recipe came from my very first recipe book (Betty Crocker's New Dinner for Two Cookbook) which I received as a wedding present in 1964 and brings back many happy memories. With three adult children, it's still one of my family's very favorite cookie bars... To answer the pan question, I always use a 13x9 1/2" pan since the recipe makes 12 servings. This is definitely a "keeper" recipe - one you'll keep returning to again & again. (Brenda in Idaho)

I am puzzled by the fact there is no mention of the coffee found in the ingredients list in the directions. When do you put in the "hot, strong coffee" or how do you use it?
