    Aunt Cookie's Note:

    These are nice bar cookies with a chocolate layer and a sort of lattice top. They were a big hit at the dinner party where I served them. Not exactly an everyday cookie (they take too much work), but they're nice if you want to impress your guests. I got this from 1001 Cookie Recipes.
