Spud Bars

Yes! Two things that Midwest Cookin just couldn't exist without: bars and potato buds!

These actually sound kind of good. I may have to break down, buy some 'buds and give these a shot...

2 tbsp. diet margarine (what? yecch. I think I'll use butter.)
1/4 c. granulated sugar (I wonder what "non-granulated" sugar is?)
1/4 c. brown sugar (packed)
6 packets granulated sugar substitute (equal to 1/4 c. sugar) (oh god, yuck! chemicals! why not put another damned 1/4 c. sugar in these for cryin out loud!? it's not like a little more sugar's gonna kill ya...)
1/2 c. flour
1/2 tsp. bakin soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 c. potato buds

Oven temp: 350 degrees

Pan size: 8x8 bakin dish

How to:
In a large bowl, with electric mixer at medium-high speed, cream together margarine, granulated sugar, brown sugar and sugar substitute. (hell no. cut that out.) Beat in flour, bakin soda, salt an dcinnamon until well blended. With spatula, stir in egg and vanilla, then potato buds. Pour batter into non-stick 8-inch square bakin pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Cut and remove from pan while still slightly warm. Makes 16 tow-inch square bars, about 75 calories each. (Oh, so these are some sort of diet spud bars? Hence the diet margarine and nasty sugar substitute? Well, why didn't you say so in the title of the recipe!? I guess with my little changes to the recipe they'd be no longer diet, but they'd definitely taste better.)
