Recipe Comments & Reviews

I have made this recipe for years and am always asked for the recipe. It's excellent. Never fails.
Ihad a catering service and used these many, many times because they were so well received. I won a Blue Ribbon at the State Fair for the best bar cookies. That was 25 years ago. I still receive raves whenever I serve my "Blue Ribbon Bar Cookies".
