Hello Dolly Bars

Oh my goodness! I have been waiting to post these on the blog ever since I started this blog back in the summer. I love these cookies. I could seriously eat the whole pan, don’t tempt me though!! These bars say Christmas to me. My grandma would make them only at Christmas time and no other time. She would probably make several batches because the family and other guests would eat them all up. I couldn’t go to my Grandparent’s house at Christmas and not have one or three of these cookies. They are so easy to put together, that is once the prep of chopping and smashing and measuring is done. Since my both of my Grandparent’s have passed away I have taken over the Christmas cookie baking duties as well as few other baking duties. My mom is still in charge of the pies at family gatherings though! As I sit here writing this post with Charlie Brown on in the background, I can smell them baking in the oven! Yummy!! Hurry! I urge you to make these bars for your family or officemates or even your next large gathering. Enjoy!!
