Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I made these and they were a hit. They are now a new addition to my cookie recipes. Thanks for creating such an easy and delicious cookie bar recipe.

These are excellent. I didn't have any coconut or cherries, so I added chopped almonds and cranberry chunks instead. Excellent.

@beanbag 03, that sounds more like an oven problem than a problem with the recipe. Is it calibrated correctly?

Terrible! I followed this recipe to the letter and the inside was still gooey as the outside top & edges were starting to burn!

These were delicious! Next time I will increase the cherries for more cherry flavor. Do you think they will still turn out?

I made these last night and they were WONDERFUL! I omitted the coconut and marachino cherries and added some milk chocolate chips and some chopped pecans and they were delicious. Thanks for a delicious recipe. Will be making them again!

This one looks and sounds like a winner.. bet they would be a hit on the Xmas tray

These are so easy to make and so good to eat

I love this recipe
