From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...I've made a lot of bar cookies this holiday season. I have, of course, wanted to capture as many recipes as I can for my collection, but my fondness for bar cookies has more to do with how easy they are to store and transport than the arbitrary accumulation of recipes that may or may not be used again. This is a lovely cookie and it is sure to please. While it is expensive to make, it keeps well and it is very easy to make. If you are looking for a new, or another, nut bar recipe for your holiday collection, I urge you to give this one a try. Here is how the bars are made.
