Blarney Stones

Every year for Christmas, my great-grandmother would prepare dozens of cookies to share with the family, separating them into shoeboxes so that each family could take some home with them; thus, we began calling them the "Shoebox Cookies." She always used five of the same recipes, and tried out two new ones (including a fudge) every year. In the past few years since we lost her, I have been trying to recreate the five recipes she always used based on the recipe card notes she left with me. Last year, I was given the unanimous vote of approval from all who could remember them, and I thought I would share them as I prepare to make them again this year. Here is the Blarney Stone recipe, which is different from the others posted on 'Zaar already. The original notes called for a "Large Square Pan," but I tried it in an 8" pan, which did not work well - they turned out overly large. So I switched it to a 9x13" pan, but just be sure to spread it evenly (although the dough is a little sticky), or the thin parts will overcook.
