My family has a longstanding tradition of baking cookies together at Christmas to give as gifts. Its a big production and one that we truly enjoy as it is the one time of year where we regulary spend weekends in Mom's kitchen measuring, mixing, baking and decorating thousands (yes thousands) of cookies. We are always on the lookout for new additions to our trays and this German bar cookie looks to have some possibilities as the original recipe indicates that it stores well. The ingredient list is not a mistake - just exacting in the amounts needed to result in a perfect bar. Made a half batch to test and the result is an incredibly rich, almost candy-like, bar. I've checked out several versions and the glaze seems to be optional. That said, it does give the finished product a nice gloss.
