Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

Maple Bars

Okay...so these have to be about the easiest thing ever when you want to fix your family a treat or impress your friends. Canned biscuits, a simple homemade frosting and seriously... you could open your own donut shop. And I’m not even much of a maple person...but these are GOOD! The frosting makes enough for TWO cans of biscuits but you can make up the whole amount and only use one can of biscuits now and use half the frosting now then stick it in the fridge until you want to make another batch. Which I will predict....will be in just a few days.

Maple Bars
2 cans refrigerated homestyle biscuits
2 cups oil ~ for frying the bars
1/3 cup butter ~ softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup milk
2 cups powdered sugar
1 tablespoon maple extract
pinch of salt
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. 
In a large saucepan, combine the butter, brown sugar, and milk over medium heat. 
Bring to a boil then reduce heat to low and cook and stir for a couple of minutes. 
Remove from heat and allow to sit while frying the bars. 
To fry the bars, stretch each biscuit into a bar shape being careful not to tear the dough. 
Fry each bar on both sides for a couple of minutes until golden brown and done in the center. 
Cool and drain on a wire rack. 
To finish the frosting, add the maple extract, salt and powdered sugar to the butter mixture and stir until smooth. 
Dip the tops of each of the bars into the frosting and set aside for frosting to set up.
