    seesko's Note:

    A light and tasty treat from Cooking LIght. The cooking light recipe said that this makes 24 bars. I disagree, I cut my bars big enough for 12. Not as light, but more than a bite.

      These turned out nice but it was a little dry so I had to add a little water to bring it together. Got 12 pieces. Thanks.

      What a delicious variation of shortbread. They are quick and easy to make, too. I prepared these exactly as directed and cut them into 24 pieces. Made for DECEMBER Bevy Tag.
