Magic Bars

Up until recently, these were the main reason I could not WAIT until Christmas cookie baking time. Then I finally remembered to get the recipe from my mom and now I can make them whenever I want.

And I do.

The  problem with them is the recipe makes a 9×13 pan and I will eat the entire pan by myself if I don’t have someone around to push me out of the way to get them.

That’s about the only way anyone else gets any, you have get through ME first.

AND they are so easy that even my sister Rachel makes them. She’s the one who likes to remind me that I shouldn’t bother telling people recipes are easy cause my perspective is off.

So if she thinks they are easy then you know it’s true.

Now I am regretting sending the entire pan to work with Jeremiah, should’a kept some for myself…
