Thank you for reviewing this recipe.
I've been making and sharing these delightful treats for several years now. They are ALWAYS a winner. Someone will taste them and quickly spread the word that they are the best sweets they have ever eaten and before you know it they are gone! I prep my pan by lining it with foil first, this makes it a cinch to remove without struggling at the corners.
Not just for special occasions...
I made this recipe on a Saturday afternoon because I had a taste for something different...something sweet. It was easy to follow the directions and the bars came out so tender and tasted so good! My husband liked them so much that he tried them hot and then he tried them cold the next day with his coffee. He absolutely loved them!
Not your average cookie
I bake cookies all the time (for the football team, friends, family and even a caterer). They are my favorite thing to bake. These are not your average cookie. Make them smaller, because they are sweet, but by all means, bake them!!
Wow these are wonderful
Last year I baked these for a cookies exchange party and they were a huge sucess. This is a keeper.
Great taste! Easy! Fast! Just plain wonderful!
