Ratings & Reviews

    This has become a Christmas favorite in my family. It's absolutely delicious, and hits that sweet tooth right on the spot.
    The bars got a great review from my boyfriend and coworkers. I like the versatility of being able to change up the flavors. I did it with blueberry jam and lemon chips. I generally do not make bars often because I find them a pain to cut. But, these cut very well. I lined the pan with foil and sprayed the foil. Worked great. I will definitely make these again with another flavor combo.
    This is my husbands favorite cookie at Holiday Time. I make at least 12 different kinds of cookies every holiday season and he looks forward to this one. My friends can't wait to get my cookies each year and they all love this one also. Excellent :-)
    I made this recipe everyone at work LOVED it. They are hoping I make it soon.
