I have been making these for about 10 years and have had many requests for the recipe. They are easy to make and disappear so quickly, if you don't grab one you might miss your chance! Serve immediately or refrigerate. Bars cut more easily if refrigerated first.

You can NOT have these cookie bars without the caramel drizzle. It's a must as I was told by everyone. Really easy recipe. Everyone enjoyed these. My one child that can't have apples liked the fact I left some bars apple free but sprinkled the spices on top and then drizzled the caramel on it. And the recipe is correct when they disappeared kids were like "where'd the go?!" because they wanted more. Super recipe. Read More
