{Food Dish} Contest: Best Dessert Bar Recipe

Remember our cookie contest? The winner (Lemon Crinkle Cookies) continues to be one of LDS Living's most popular online posts every week. Since it seems people enjoy desserts the most, our new "best" will appeal to your sweet tooth, taking its inspiration from equal parts cookie and cake: dessert bars.

Here are the rules (you must abide by each for your recipe to be considered):

1) Recipes must be original. As delicious as you find Paula Deen's Five-Layer Bars recipe, we can't consider it. And don’t simply change the name—just as you wouldn’t want someone else to claim work that is yours, please do not claim someone else’s as your own. (If you found a recipe and tweaked it beyond recognition, you can submit that as your own. Family recipes are also acceptable.) 

2) Submit the recipe with your full name, e-mail address, home city and state, and a valid daytime phone number by Friday, April 20, 2012. (LDS Living will use this information only to get a hold of you in the event that you win; we will not use it for marketing or other purposes.)

If you have a photo of the dessert bar, please submit it, but photos are not required.

E-mail recipes to editor[at]ldsliving[dot]com. (E-mail the editor.)

We will be testing the recipes after we receive them. The winner will receive a $100 gift certificate to Deseret Book and will be announced along with two runners-up throughout May, starting on May 10, and the winning recipes will also be given at that time. In addition, our winner and runners-up will be featured in the recipe section of an upcoming issue of LDS Living magazine!

You responded to our challenge the first time with gusto. Have you got what it takes to be crowned victor and join the august ranks of LDS Living best chefs? We're excited find out.

Bonne chance!
