What do you do when you bake cookies you cannot eat that are sitting in your kitchen, screaming that they want to be eaten? Well, you give them away, right? But what happens when you made too much? You turn them into another cookie treat!

I used Pecan Sandies for my cookie crumbles and Peanut M&M's to make these. They are so darn good we couldn't leave them alone! Made according to the recipe, these cookie bars are "Outasight!"
