After sampling these tender cookies in a specialty store, I knew I had to duplicate them. My version has lots of toffee bits and butterscotch chips. I give away dozens as home-baked gifts. —Sandra McKenzie, Braham, MN
I started baking these Christmas classics when I was a sophomore in high school...and I and still making them now for my grown children and grankids. The combination of jam, buttery shortbread, chocolate and sprinkles adds up to a fancy and festive treat.
These cookies have been a Christmas tradition in my family since I was a little girl. The big bears are so soft and chewy that we can hardly wait until they come out of the oven!—Elizabeth Manzanares, Gloucester, Virginia
“I search all year long for new recipes to try and give away to friends and family, and I make hundreds of cookies each year. These cookies taste just like a Mounds bar.”
