On ungreased cookie sheet, shape into three rolls Press down. Bake 9 or 10 min. Sprinkle immediately with granulated sugar. Allow to cool and cut into bars.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I do not use nuts as everyone in my family does not like them. Instead of raisins, I use currents as they are smaller and spread throughout the dough better.
I also use more than one cookie sheet so the dough does not run together when cooking.
