Would make this again.
Let me begin by saying, I LOVE THIS SITE! I teach music and I usually end up baking 75 dozen cookies for winter concert and this is my go to source.

That said, this cookie is one of the favorites! You should make questions asked!

This is a really festive square for Christmas. I made it for a bake exchange and was lucky enough to have some left to do so as my family loved them!

Would make this again.
I took these cookies to a Cookie Swap Party. They were VERY easy to make and looked so pretty with the red and white from the cranberries and white chocolate chips. (Some Cookie Swaps have rules that do not allow bar-type cookies. Thank goodness ours did, because there were some REALLY great bar cookies at our party!) They are easy to make and delicious. 5 stars

I made this recipe for a cookie exchange with my family. I did a test batch and had people sample it and they loved, loved, loved it. I think I like this version better than the original. 5 stars
