About 5-6 years so we had a BAD BLIZZARD - we stayed at work all day as my store is close to the mountains in a "milder" part of a city with micro climates. As we started home on this particular night on the interstate, many cars were stuck on the sides of the road - even a police car! At one point nothing moved while we sat on a bridge in a whiteout. People got out of their cars and chatted as if we were in a parking lot. Tina from Colorado T's (t-shirt shop a few doors down) had given us a basket of homemade goodies earlier in the day for a Christmas treat and we had the basket in the car going home. We reached for the basket and ATE EVERYTHING in it! This recipe was received from her later after I requested it - these are so delicious!
TINA'S WALNUT BERRY BLIZZARD BITES: I added the blizzard part of course!
You will need to preheat the oven to 350 degrees: get out a 15 x 10 x 1 inch jelly roll pan which you will spray with no stick cooking spray.
Ingredients for the base: 2 1/2 cups sifted flour, 1 cup margarine (NOT butter) which is cut into pieces, 1/2 cup confectioners sugar and 1/2 tsp salt
