This is an excellant cookie! It it full of flavor & very easy to make. I made these bars for my daughter to bring to school. It was one of those "Mom, remember I told you I needed cookies for tomorrow." moments & of course, I had completely forgotten. I had all of the ingredients in the cupboard & made these up. I left out the nuts (dd doesn't like them) & the chocolate drizzle (I was in a hurry), but otherwise followed the recipe as posted. Good cookies, I will make them again. Thanks, Brenda!
