I found these delicious bars on the blog Macaroni and Cheesecake. As soon as I saw them I knew I had to try them. How couldn’t I? I know it’s officially December and I should be posting nothing but Christmas recipes but I still had this little Fall recipe hanging about and I wanted to share it with all of you
The great thing about these bars is they were super easy to make and super delicious to eat…yum! I shared half the pan with the neighbors and I heard great reviews. In fact I was told by the husband “you need to give my wife that recipe it was awesome!” I personally think that is all the review you need to go out and try them The only thing I changed from the original recipe was add a little cinnamon and vanilla to the glaze. Enjoy!!!
