Although these bars are Christmas-party pretty, they're really good any time of year. In fact, I always double the recipe cause they're such a hit with my husband and six children. Even then, I never have any left over.

"I really enjoyed how easy these were to make! I didn't have any sugar cookie dough on hand, so I madey own crust, but they still didn't last long in my house!"
