12 Days of Christmas Cookies, Day 11: Everything Layer Bar Cookies - Easy Christmas Cookie Recipe for Kids and Families
Perfect for one of this year’s 12 Days of Christmas Cookies!
Much like Magic Bars, you make these cookies in layers. But this recipe has a twist. You bake the bottom layer first. Once it has set, you remove the baking pan from the oven and add the other layers.
And we all know from the name of the recipe that the toppings include all the good stuff in your baking pantry: chocolate, nuts, and dried fruit.
Prep time: 10 minutes

That’s one reason it’s a good one to use to make gifts for teachers, neighbors, family members or to take to a party as a dish to pass.
