Recipe by Chef53Kathy

I have been chairman of a Christmas Cookie Sale at my church for the past few years and we make literally 20 to 30 thousand cookies to sell. I am always on the look-out for new recipes and this is one of them.

When this was baked I managed to get 32 bars from a 13"x9" baking pan, not a bad size for a bar, but not the 48 indicated, either! Still the bars themselves are very tasty & make a nice addition to my cookie sale! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick-A-Chef]
