Freaking awesome. Took them over the top and added half a bag of Hershey's cinnamon chips. Lordie. These are addictive. Don't make them unless you're going to a potluck otherwise you'll eat them...

I only gave this recipe 5 stars because it didn't go any higher! These bar cookies are beyond phenomenal! I have made them twice now and they have turned out perfect both times. I plan to mak...

AMAZING! I absolutely loved these. I didn't have pecans though, so I put walnuts and raisins in it instead. It was very yummy:P everybody loved them:):)
