Passionate Cookie Bars

I don't know what to say except I LOVE THESE. It isn't difficult to adjust the recipe with different types of jelly or toppings for different tastes or occasions.

These are a V-Day treat I enjoy making to take to Valentine's parties.

How to Make Passionate Cookie Bars


  • 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9x13x2 baking pan.
  • 2In a large mixing bowl, stir together flour, sugar, nuts and egg in a large bowl. Cut in the cold butter with a pastry cutter or fork until it is a coarse crumbly mixture. Measure out about 1 1/2 cups and set aside.
  • 3Firmly press the remaining crumbs into the bottom of greased pan.

    Stir jelly to soften and make it easier to spread, if it is too thick add a teaspoon or two of water.

    Spread over crumb mixture and then crumble the reserved crumb mixture over the top.
  • 4Bake about 40-45 minutes, will be light brown. Top with coconut flakes and cook completely in pan before cutting into bars.
