German Kuchen Bars

Every once in awhile you come across that recipe that you make again and again because people wow over it. This is one of those recipes. If you grew up with any sort of German heritage, you have had kuchen. This is unique that it is in bar form and not in pie form. To me this is a super easy one to make to feed many people. Try different fruits or fillings. My favorite is peach but I think raspberries or blackberries would work as well. I received this recipe from my husband’s aunt Betty. She is a fabulous cook and I treasure each of her recipes. Thanks for sharing Betty!
