Cookie Experiments

These are from a week or so ago when I needed some thank-you cookies. I've needed a lot of thank you cookies lately.

These are almond fruit bars. They only make an 8-inch square pan, so I made two sets instead of doubling the recipe. I used a seedless raspberry jam as the filling. Overall, they are pretty and tasty, but I thought they needed more almond. If I made them again, I would add some almond extract to the crust.

These are black-bottom coconut bars. Again, the recipe makes a 9-inch square pan and they are easy to lift out of the pan (I sprayed mine with Pam with flour prior to baking). They were a big hit - very rich and chewy.

I also made a batch of pumpkin chocolate-chip squares. I have no recipe as I literally pulled them out of the oven and handed them off to a friend. She assures me they were delicious and they certainly smelled good!

  1. Those sound so yummy! My mom made these lemony shortbread cookies with the jam in the center of each that were the tastiest little things I have ever had. You would probably love them. I'll have to post the recipe sometime. Thanks for sharing all your wonderful recipes!
