These bars are so yummy and hit the spot for a sweet treat. I top mine with cream cheese frosting especially concocted for this bar. This makes a lot so it's also great for a child's class, bake sale, or party! The best thing about these cookies, think about the holidays. For Valentines day add a little red food coloring to the icing, St Patricks Day, add some green, how about Halloween add some orange food coloring and you will have a huge tray of the most festive cookies, at whatever party you are at. One of my daughter's favorites!
