Y’all, today is my birthday. A BIG birthday. I’m entering my fourth decade begrudgingly, but if I have to do it — I would like it known that these bars are comin’ with me. I’m not sure how this day is gonna go down (because I’m writing this post at 5:41am) but I have a feeling it will be a whirlwind of laughter, maybe a little surprise and a hint of sadness. I’ll let you know next week!
In the meanwhile, can we talk about these bars I made earlier this week? I love a good bar cookie more than anything else because they are so easy to make. No scooping and rolling the dough; just press it all in the pan and voila! Delicious cookie bars.
I like these even better than the average bar cookie because they are so unique. They’re a cinnamon roll slathered with cream cheese frosting, but in cookie form. And they’re so tender and buttery, you won’t be able to stop yourself from eating a whole row of bars.
This disappeared in a record 45 minutes at our house. I still don’t know where they all went because no one will ‘fess up. Luckily, they are easy enough to whip up a second batch — which is what I had to do to bring to a luncheon the next day
(You should know by now that my house is a hideout for cookie thieves, no?)
p.s. This is some sticky dough, so be sure to butter your hands — or spray them with cooking spray — before pressing into the pan.
