We really enjoyed these slightly soft bar cookies. The recipe measurements and directions are very clear and accurate, although I did get a greater number of cookies by cutting them much thinner. These tasted so comforting - the perfect thing to eat while curled up in a chair reading a book and sipping a cup of tea. Thank you for this delightful, old fashioned, homey recipe.

Oh Merlot, these are amazing! Made for my Christmas goody trays, and they were a huge hit! They are very easy and quick to prepare, and look and taste like you spent much more time on them! I greased the pan well, and when they were done, I ran a knife around the edge of the pan, flipped the whole thing onto a cutting board, and used my pizza cutter to get perfect little squares. Don't remember how many I got, but it was much more than 12. And I thought the nuts would be too much, but I was WRONG! They were perfect! Thanks for sharing a wonderful recipe my friend!
